“Can’t believe it’s 9 years already. I remember every single day of that shoot. I was lucky to work with my favourite artists in the cast and crew. Form friendships that will stay for life, grow up as a film maker.. and have an affair with Spain. If I could be taken back in time, I would choose to experience this shoot again!”, she shares as she reminisces the experience that the movie is- fresh and breathing, in everybody’s hearts even today.
