Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra to celebrate White Christmas in New York

For the first time in the history of Indian cinema, director Siddharth Anand in ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ will shoot New York, including the completely forbidden Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree, during Christmas time.

Elaborate plans have been made and producer Sajid Nadiadwala has got all the necessary permission to shoot in the areas of New York where cameras are not allowed during the festive season.

Informs Anand; “Shooting a movie in downtown New York during Christmas time is completely prohibited. We won’t only be shooting in and around New York at Christmas time; we will also be shooting the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Centre, which is the tallest Christmas tree in the world. The tree there is 70 feet tall. That’s equivalent to a three story building.”

Any kind of film shooting around the Rockefeller Christmas tree is strictly forbidden.

Apparently, producer Nadiadwala got his friend Sylvester Stallone (who worked in Nadiadwala’s ‘Kambakkht Ishq’) to pull some strings for the rare permission.

Says director Siddharth Anand, “I don’t know how Sajid did it. But he managed the near impossible. Priyanka, Ranbir and I are very excited about it.”

This Christmas, director Siddharth Anand is hoping for snow in New York. Without it, the whole meticulously planned concept of the lead pair Ranbir and Priyanka bringing in Christmas in New York would fall flat.

Says Siddharth, “Yeah we’re praying for a white Christmas in New York.”

Ranbir who shot in artificial snow for ‘Saawariya’ and also assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali on ‘Black’, which again had artificial snow is excited about the white Christmas in New York.

“My wife Mamta, is styling Ranbir. He’ll be dressed the way New Yorkers from West Village are. Very trendily in jackets, scarves, coats and woolens. We’ll show Ranbir and Priyanka cruising the brightly lit-up streets of New York during Christmas. You’ll see them shopping on camera. And that would be real Christmas shopping.”
