The French media covers the shooting of ‘Ishkq in Paris’

The French media got notice of the filming of Preity’s Ishkq in Paris recently. The above video reports the recent shooting in Lyon. Thanks Laura and Elodie for providing the translation for the video!


Shooting in the cold, in front of the opera, the team behind the camera is a crew from the Indian film industry, Bollywood. The actress hidden under the hat is Preity Zinta, one of Indian’s the biggest filmstars.

Preity wanted to shoot her long-awaited movie in France. She loves everything in the classic patrimonial style and the city of Lyon was the heart of the action.

The script is about a young, independent woman who seeks for love. A classic portrayal of a Bollywood story. What unusual is, is the budget of the movie,which is over a million Euro’s. The shooting will take place -besides Lyon- in Italy as well. The aim is to distribute the movie is France.

The movie will be screened in France and dubbed in the French language. The mother of Preity will be played by Isabelle Adjani and it is the first time that a French star will work opposite an Indian actor.

The shooting in Lyon will last for one week than the team will film the Alps and in Paris. ‘Ishkq in Paris’ means ‘Love in Paris’ and is scheduled to release in May 2012.

    @zar Please don’t call it a PROJECT!!!

    Im so excited and happy! If it released, dubbed in French as well as in English.. I’m sure this film will garner total revenue beyond Rs.100 crore! What say guys?!!!!!! I wish and pray it does!!! PZee sure has great business sense!!!!

    But I wonder if the Indian audience will like the film, if it is so classy and patrimonial..!!! However I guess the cute-yet-elegant Preity will surely win entry into the hearts of the masses all over again!!!!
