Official permissions are often required to shoot at guarded locations and Bollywood is not new to it. But the makers of Neil Nitin Mukesh’s upcoming film 3G faced a unique problem. They wanted to shoot the film on the picturesque Fiji Islands and the local village elders of some smaller islands initially refused them permission!
They were reportedly concerned about any possible disturbance and damage to their habitat. The unit had a seven-hour long chat with them and things were finally sorted out when the two parties shared the local drink ‘kava’. As they say, a lot can happen over a drink. The film has been shot on the Denarau Island, capital Suva and Sigatoka town, besides the smaller islands.
