Whether you like it or not, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is still creating a buzz in the industry! Both Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan have received immense praises from their fans as well as from other Bollywood celebrities for their acting and roles in the film. In fact, 6 people of different cultural backgrounds told us why they loved the highly entertaining rom-com.

Now, it’s Bollywood photographer Rohan Shrestha’s turn to tell us about his experience shooting the Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania photo shoot as well as show us 5 unreleased images of the smoking hot duo!

Team MissMalini (Team MM): What was your concept/style for the HSKD photoshoot?

Rohan Shrestha (RS): After the reading the script, I needed to balance what Shashank Khaitan saw in his 2 actors but still keep the glamour quotient alive, as this is a Dharma film after all. It was interesting shooting Varun and Alia in kurtas and salwars, while still lighting it fashionably.

Team MM: Is this a new concept/style or something you usually do?

RS: This is the first film that I worked on, and I’m lucky to have a Dharma film as a first. So to answer the question, no, it was the first time for me!

Team MM: Who was easier to work with? Varun or Alia?

RS: Varun is someone I’ve been working with for a while. He gets me ideas, and it’s very organic when we shoot. I hadn’t worked with Alia prior to this shoot, but we got along really well and the shots were great!

Team MM: Who was more fun? Varun or Alia? Who was the live wire?

RS: The chemistry that the two of them share was the live wire – they are like two little kids, constantly fighting, hilarious arguments but the camaraderie that they share is amazing. They always kept me entertained.

Team MM: What was the energy like on the sets on HSKD photo shoot?

RS: The energy was insane, whether shooting in the rain or in the cold, humidity, it didn’t matter, Shashank is such an amazing person that he brought out the best in all of us. It shows in the film as well I think, its a beautifully made film with a wonderful array of emotions.
