    Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do is getting a lot of attention for being a film that has been majorly shot on a cruise. But shooting a film on a cruise liner while sailing in the sea was not an easy task for the makers of the movie.
    When Pullmantur Broke Down
    Recollecting an incident, Shefali Shah who plays Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra’s mother in film says, “It was during one of the schedules that the ship, Pullmantur broke down. However it was producer Ritesh (Sidhwani) who took full charge of it. The team was to shoot at Barcelona where the vessel was supposed to arrive, but the ship got stuck at Masseube. Thus Ritesh took the cast and crew of over 200 people to the place where it was anchored (at Masseube) and shot the scenes there. It was really quick of him to do that because it is not as easy as it sounds.”
    5 Weeks In Sea, Two Months On Land
    The actress says that the team shot on the cruise for a period of five weeks. Apparently, the cast and crew members would board the ship at Barcelona and then go out on a one week sail. “During this one week we would shoot out portions while the ship sails in the water and travels to various destinations (like France, Italy etc),” shares Shefali. Thus the team went on five such journeys for a period of one-one week each and canned the cruise adventure portions.
    Big Party On Board
    While onboard, Shefali says it was like a big party! “We worked hard but partied even harder. We went to places which we had not even heard before. But the most exotic part of the cruise was to see the sunrise and sunset live in the midst of the waters,” says the excited actress.
    About Pullmantur
    Pullmantur Cruises is quite a well known name when it comes to European cruise. The brand offers four ships – Monarch, Sovereign, Empress and Horizon. Out of the four, Dil Dhadakne Do has been shot on Sovereign.
    Pullmantur’s Sovereign occupies 14 decks and 1162 cabins. It also hosts luxury and lifestyle in the name of restaurants, cafes, bars, discotheque, Broadway show lounge and salons. That apart the liner also looks at satisfying the health and fitness needs of their guests with the presence of jogging track, pools, wall climbing, pedal track etc.
    Sovereign offers a seven night tour of the Mediterranean sea and covers destinations ranging from Barcelona, Valencia, Las Palmas, Salvadore De Bahia, Malaga, Gibraltar to Naples among others.
