The unit of Vikramaditya Motwane's epic romance Lootera starring Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha has been shooting in a small village in the Purulia district of West Bengal. It was quite a grueling schedule for the cast and crew as the location of the shoot was a 4 hour drive from the Akash hotel where they were put up in Purulia.
However, despite travelling to and fro for almost 8 hours daily and then shooting another 8-10 hours, Ranveer would still make it a point to entertain the huge crowd that would gather outside his hotel to see him everyday. The profound exhaustion notwithstanding, Ranveer would dance to popular tunes from Band Baaja Baaraat for the cheering crowd, which had gathered from far and wide. Needless to say, within no time he had become a darling of the masses of Purulia district.
Speaking about this experience, Ranveer said, "It's a great feeling to be able to reach out to so many people."
Lootera is a Balaji - Phantom co-production which releases worldwide on October 26.
