Muscat, August 5, 2013
Oman has attracted international movie makers and is set to be showcased with Oman Air’s support and assistance, as 'Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Again' gets launched.
The movie received a promotional push by the Oman Ministry of Tourism recently at a press conference held at the Taj Lands End, Bandra, Mumbai.
It is directed by Milan Luthria and stars Sonakshi Sinha, Imran Khan and Akshay Kumar. The movie was filmed in and around Muscat and its launch follows the success of its predecessor, 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbai.'
Oman Air provided transport and logistical services for the movie's cast and crew, said a statement.
Akshay Kumar said: “The city has been quite friendly to me and I have always enjoyed the experience of shooting here. While I haven’t travelled around Oman, I found the city of Muscat to be quaint, charming and picturesque. It has a beautiful old-world charm about it. And Oman Air made our trip thoroughly enjoyable with their superb services on and off the flight!”
Luthria and producers Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms, also expressed their appreciation to Oman Air for extending its hospitality which they said left them all “genuinely impressed.” - TradeArabia News Service
