Phulwa is fighting against all odds

The makers of Phulwa on Colors attempted the unexpected! Since the storyline of Phulwa is based in Chambal, to present a factual representation, the team did not compromise and decided to shoot most of the opening episodes in the ravines of Chambal.
While the audience will like the locales of Chambal, the production team has a list of tales to narrate on how they managed to shoot each sequence! From Agra market, Bhateshwar, Dholpur, Holipura and many localities in and around Agra... the team of Phulwa, that's aired at 9 pm, was mobbed at every stage. The most dangerous experience was in Dholpur. As the team was busy setting up for a sequence, the local crowd gathered at the location. The people loaded with arms and ammunition landed up at the location threatened the unit with knives and took away the food that was prepared for the crew.
The team's shooting equipment worth Rs 50 lakhs too were held back under their custody, which was returned after much persuasion. Considering the unit of Phulwa as outsiders, the locals of Dholpur did not like interference in their normal day-to-day life. They went to the extent of rupturing the tyres by laying thorns and huge stones blocks on the way to the location in the ravines. Hats off to the team and for their grit and determination, who despite extreme weather conditions and other hurdles continued shooting in Chambal!
