Sooraj Barjatya, known for classic family dramas such as Hum Aapke Hain Koun.! and Hum Saath Saath Hai, is preparing for his seventh directorial venture, Uunchai (transl. Height). The movie being shot on Mount Everest depicts the great Himalayan story itself just like our very own Dolma Tours which has been working to provide the adventurous experience through the challenges with bliss and comfort.
It is scheduled for theatrical release on November 11, 2022, distributed by Yash Raj Films through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. With the latest addition, the film’s ensemble cast continues to grow and improve. The star cast includes Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, and Danny Denzongpa, playing four friends, with Parineeti Chopra, Neena Gupta, Sarika, and Nafisa Ali in supporting roles for the film.
About The Movie And The Cast
Uunchai depicts the story of three best friends who embark on a journey full of friendship to Everest Base Camp. A simple journey that becomes a personal, emotional, and spiritual one as they overcome their physical limitations in their sixties and discover the true meaning of freedom. The film is more about the friendship of four friends in their sixties.
Yash Raj Films will distribute Rajshri’s Uunchai in India and abroad; the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer will follow in the footsteps of Hum Aapke Hain Koun and will be released in limited theaters.
There are very few directors in Bollywood whose name alone is enough to entice audiences to the theater. One such filmmaker is Sooraj Barjatya. The trailer for his upcoming film, Uunchai, was released a few days ago and has gotten much attention. The fact that it brings together Sooraj Barjatya and Amitabh Bachchan for the first time adds to the excitement. And now, we have some exciting news about this film to share with you.
Gupta, Sarika, and Chopra play pivotal roles in the upcoming slice-of-life Drama. However, the specifics of their characters remain unknown. According to the report, Chopra will ‘be the film’s light.’
“Uunchai shall be one of the most special films of my life,” says Parineeti, “because I got to work with such legendary actors in our industry.” I was ecstatic to visit the sets and grab something new from these talented actors every day. Their enthusiasm, dedication, and commitment to the craft inspired me to become a better actor and a better person.”
“Uunchai” Shooting In Nepal
The Everest region of Nepal is where the movie was filmed. We anticipate that this film will raise awareness of Nepal’s Himalayan region. The 25-day shooting in Nepal occurred in numerous locations throughout the hilly areas of Khotang and Manang, as well as Kathmandu (for two days).
Suraj Acharya, the founder and chairman of the Valley-based film production business 3 Wheelers Films, stated, “The actors arrived on October 3 and remained in the capital city until October 7. Certain movie scenes were shot at Swoyambhu and the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA).”
Acharya, who also oversees the movie’s filming in the nation, responded when asked how the project started here, “I have been in the entertainment industry for 30 years and have been in contact with various Indian directors for years. Sooraj Barjatya, the filmmaker, contacted me about three years ago to oversee the film’s production.
The shooting has only just begun because the pandemic stopped it last year. According to Acharya, Danny Denzongpa played a native of Solukhumbu in the friendship-centered movie. The Everest region and significant portions of Solukhumbu and Manang were used for filming.
