'Tadap' has been the year's one of the most awaited films. The movie which markes the debut of Ahan Shetty, got the fans all hyped up with the trailer of the film and 2 very groovy and soulful tracks from the film were also recently unveiled. The film has been said to be shot at real and aesthetic locations of Mussoorie and Milan Luthria opens up on the same.

Milan shared, "The search for the ideal location for 'Tadap' was not an easy one. We wanted a place that supported both rugged action and glorious romance, and was also relatively unexplored and fresh. Our writer Rajat Arora had spent his summers growing up in Mussoorie, and we headed there for a look. It took me by surprise. I have shot all over India, but this Queen of the Hills is aptly named. It has very good accessibility, stunning heights of more than 6000 feet, and an abundance of natural beauty. It also is one of the cleanest and most well maintained hill stations in India. Add to this the sister hill station of Landour which has a fabulous British feel with cobbled roads, church and quaint bakeries and cafes, and you get two for the price of one."

He continues, "The winding roads climbing the ghats were ideal for our bike sequences and chases, while the intimate cafes and the abundance of natural beauty in the form of beautiful tress, wide vistas and multi hued flowers in bloom gave us the perfect backdrop for the romantic parts. Many of the old structures, homes and palace hotels are very well maintained and spotless, and these were adapted into homes for the lead characters."

Adding to it he shared, "One of the main challenges of the shoot was the weather, especially at nights. It would suddenly drop to sub zero, with a wind chill factor thrown in. Some of the scenes have been shot with the actors holding hot water bags till a few seconds before the camera rolled. To sum up, a lot of the freshness in 'Tadap' has to do with the stunning vistas, natural beauty and stunning blue skies of this beautiful part of the country."

Starring Ahan Shetty and Tara Sutaria, Fox Star Studios presents, ‘Tadap’, a Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Production. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, co-produced by Fox Star Studios, directed by Milan Luthria and written by Rajat Arora, ‘Tadap’ is scheduled to release on 3rd December, 2021.
