‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ to have the local flavors of Sapin

Spain is bubbling with the cast and crew of Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ who are there for the shoot of the first schedule of the film. Being shot in Spain, the movie will feature many of its local customs and traditions.
The ‘running of the bull’ ritual is very popular in Spain and Hrithik, Farhan and Abhay participated in it to shoot a scene for the film. Looking their handsome best in the traditional costume of red and white,
the three actors ran along with a group of locals while being chased by running bulls and this scene is supposed to be one of the film’s major highlights.
Every year from July 7th-14th thousands pack into Pamplona to start Spain’s most famous bull-running fiesta to honour Navarre capital’s patron saint, San Fermin. Spain stages more than 3, 000 fiestas (festivals) each year but the seven days of bull running are the favorite in terms of spectacle and excitement.
Zoya also shot another popular custom - a tomato-throwing match where opponents douse each other in tomato pulp- with Katrina Kaif and the three male leads of the film.
