Filming Delhi’s street treats

Here are some stills from our shoot around Old and New Delhi

In the little lanes of old Delhi are found delicious dishes ranging from Nalli Nihari to Japanese Samosas to Daulat ki chaat and some smashing parathas, ras malai and jalebis. In the months from November to February, it is fun seeking out these street treats. To make a little video about them is, well, fun and interesting. But when you have two pretty and willing girls as your stars who thrive with all the attention shooting a video attracts, it becomes completely crazy and chaotic. Here are some pictures shot during the shoot:
