New Delhi: The famous Tomatina festival was not held in Spain recently, though it really felt like it was. The crew from the film “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” by Zoya Akhtar had the best time they ever had. This includes Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, who slashed ripe tomato at the crew and each other, having the time of their lives. We will have the chance to see a part of this festivity in the film. In a scene, Katrina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar can be seen celebrating in the Spanish style. The actors said it felt like they were back in India, playing holi.
24 tones of tomato brought in from Portugal were used for the shooting. The producer, Ritesh Sidwani, said that they wanted to make the festival look authentic, and the tomatos were not ripe in Spain. Director Zoya Akhtar also talked about festival, saying that it is very close to the Holi celebration. They had to shut down the town, as they shot the scenes in the exact location of the actual festival.
