With a final count of 38 filming days, Dishoom is Abu Dhabi’s longest feature filming project to date and is due for release in July 2016.
The cast and crew arrived in Abu Dhabi in January 2016 to begin a non-stop schedule of filming at 30 different locations including Ferrari World, Nurai Island, Emirates Palace, Yas Waterworld, Sheikh Zayed Stadium and Liwa Desert, with the final scenes shot yesterday on Reem Island. In February, Sajid Nadiadwala, owner of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and executive producer of Dishoom, visited the set and praised the diversity of locations that Abu Dhabi offered.
Director of the film, Rohit Dhawan, spoke highly of the experience in Abu Dhabi: “It has been a memorable time filming in Abu Dhabi. Working with twofour54 in Abu Dhabi has been very streamlined, they delivered what they promised. On top of that, Abu Dhabi has fantastic locations that have given us beautiful scenes that I am excited for the audience to see once the film is out.”
