Bandish Bandits has been a beautiful escape for all the music lovers and with the monsoons the series has just been a beautiful treat. All the famous celebrities, the hottest couples of B-town and the audiences have enjoyed this fresh concept and everything the series has to offer. Director Anand Tiwari shares his unique experience while shooting for Bandish Bandits.
Talking about his experience, Anand Tiwari says, “So we’ve made two songs Garaj Garaj and Garaj Jugalbandi and both of them are shot in Malhar and when Shankar Ji composed these songs he had told us that in some shows when he sang the Malhar Raag it had started raining. I’ve also heard that when you sing the Malhar Raag it starts raining but I really didn’t pay attention to it but when a legend says it, you have to believe it.”
Sharing the experience of what happened on the day of the shoot director says, “So while we were shooting in Bikaner, Rajasthan in the month of April, it never rains over there it’s deserted. While we were doing the sound test a day prior to the shoot there was a huge storm and then we thought that if we play Garaj Garaj it shouldn’t start raining and the next day when we were shooting with Naseer sir it started raining so heavily like it rains in Mumbai. Then we shot the jugalbandi you will see that in the show even on that day it was raining for the entire night and our set had completely gone haywire. The people of Jodhpur and Bikaner was giving us blessings and saying that we came from Mumbai and we bought the Mumbai rains also with us. But how could we tell them that this Malhar actually made us stop our shoot. The power of the Raag we witnessed it that day with our eyes.”
Adding further if Bandish Bandit has shouting to do with the Mumbai rains currently the director says,”Yes I feel so because entire Mumbai is seeing all the episodes together that’s why it’s raining so heavily.”
