Ishaan Khattar shared some pictures from the sets of the film.
Mumbai Mirror reports that legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray was the inspiration behind his project. "Filmmakers like Satayajit Ray have represented India's culture, its rich heritage and the lives of common people to a global audience. These visions and images have stayed in my mind for year. That's what cajoled me to make a film in India," he told Mumbai Mirror.
The shooting of Beyond The Clouds began in February. The first poster was unveiled in the same month. "This poster is Majidi's vision for the film and his special showcase of India seen from his lens and sets the tone of the project that the viewers can look forward to," the makers of the film said in statement, reported news agency IANS.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Deepika Padukone will play the leading lady in the film after some pictures of the actress with Mr Majidi swiftly went viral on social media. Later, the filmmaker confirmed that Deepika wouldn't be a part of the film. "I want to work with Deepika, but for this film we'll have to go with new faces," he told mid-day.
Malvika's casting in Beyond The Clouds was confirmed a couple of months ago. "Majid Majidi found his leading lady in Malavika as he was looking for a face, that could fit the character," IANS quoted a source from the film's unit as saying.
The first look poster of Beyond The Clouds was released at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival.
