Out and About

I’m currently in Leicester, England working on a feature film called ‘Jadoo’. It’s a film about two brothers, both wonderful chefs who fall out catastrophically. At the climax of their dispute they rip the family recipe book in half – one brother gets the starters and the other gets the main courses. They set up rival restaurants, on opposite sides of the same road, and spend the next twenty years trying to outdo each other. Neither brother will admit it but they both know they are not entirely successful in the ‘other half’ of the menu. It takes a daughter – a successful London lawyer, Shalini, marrying a man from a different ethnic background – to reunite them. She is planning her marriage and is determined that they will both attend.

It’s been amazing working alongside so many talented and passionate people. I’ve been learning so much and loving every moment of it! The people of Leicester have been extremely supportive and everyone who sees us filming on location is thrilled to hear that we’re making a movie based in their hometown. With another four weeks of filming we have some big numbers ahead of us including the very colorful paint festival (Holi) scene. Here is a selection of photos from our first week:
