'Aiyyaa' shows 'jhalak' of J.J. School of Arts
In the movie, the male protagonist Suraj, played by southern actor Prithviraj, is a painting student. To bring more reality to the film, several parts of the film were shot in the institute, which was set up in Mumbai in 1857.
In 2010, the state government had banned shooting inside the prestigious institution after four 125 years old sculptures were severely damaged during a film shoot, but the makers of 'Aiyyaa' managed to get the permission from the school trustees.
The film is about a Marathi girl, Meenakshi Deshapande (Rani Mukherjee) whose parents are trying to get her married and she falls in love with Suraj. Co-produced by Anurag Kashyap and Viacom 18, it is expected to hit theatres on October 12.
