AN international film took a break from the adventure capital of Fiji, Pacific Harbour and brought the action to Suva.

Bollywood stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sonal Chauhan spent yesterday at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, where scenes for the thriller 3G was shot.

Among the crew members was art director Shree Kumar, who added colour and light to the altar.

He said he enjoyed using sulu fabric to decorate the sets, adding a colour and touch of Fiji each time.

With the altar, I added more flowers, Mr Kumar said.

Fiji is beautiful so there are just a few things that are being added, he said.

The movie is about a couple who come to settle in Fiji and were haunted by a supernatural being.

It is understood that in yesterdays shoot, Mukesh and Chauhan visited a priest in search of help. Mukeshs films include Players, 7 Khoon Maaf, Johnny Gaddar, Aa Dekhen Zara and New York while Sonal has worked in films like Jannat and Buddhah Hoga Tera Baap.

Kumar said they would begin shooting another thriller called Table 21 mid-next month.
