$7million locally-shot film premiers next month

THE second full-scale $7million Bollywood film shot in Fiji, 3G, will be released worldwide on March 15.

The thriller, a project of EROS subsidiary Next Generation Films, features Bollywood heartthrob Neil Nitin Mukesh and actress Sonal Chauhan.

The film was shot in Fiji for 50 days with most of it done in the west.

In a statement last week, Masti Arts and Dance Group which hosted the premiere of another Fiji-made Bollywood film Table No. 21 earlier this year, said it will host the premiere of 3G on March 14 at Village 6 Cinemas.

The film is a story about a couple, Sam Arora and Sheena, who become victims of a series of events when Sam buys a 3G-enabled second-hand phone in Fiji while on a holiday.

One night, they receive a phantom call that changes their lives forever — they face the unbelievable reality that the phone is somehow responsible for all that's happening to them.

3G embodies the horror of a recurring nightmare that draws inspiration from the insecurities of modern life.

Also, 40 local extras feature in the film with several of them in speaking roles.

The film features stunts and spine-chilling sequences; some sequences were shot at the luxurious Denarau Island, Suva, Pacific Harbour and Sigatoka Town.

The film is co-directed by Sheershak Anand and Shantanu Ray Chibber.
