Hotstar Specials has recently released movie Bahut Hua Samman, which is a satire that sheds light on the struggles of today’s youth and scams that have affected the society. Raghav Juyal and Abhishek Chauhan who play engineers had a great time filming in the campus of Banaras Hindu University in Varanasi. The two young boys stayed at the campus for four days before they commenced shooting. Raghav’s experience of essaying an engineering student got him a few learnings and also gave a lifetime memory of the campus.
Speaking about the campus experience as an engineer, Raghav recalls how he enjoyed gearing up for the role and says, “We had a great time while shooting, Abhishek and I had the privilege of staying in the campus for 4 days before we started the shoot. To understand our roles and to get in the skin of the character we spoke to the students, spent some great time with them talking about many things over chai and lassi. We played, we sang and had super fun. I realized Engineers learn the virtues of patience and loyalty to friends through the four years of college. Through this experience for Bahut Hua Samman, I was taken on an incredible journey of experiencing it first hand. I truly salute all the engineering students across the country who pull this feat off relentlessly and I am so glad I was given this role as Bony. It was an experience that I will never forget because not only was it relatable, but an adventure that I looked forward to every day on set.”
The movie features an ensemble cast of Sanjay Mishra, Abhishek Chauhan, Raghav Juyal, Nidhi Singh, Ram Kapoor and Namit Das. It is directed by Ashish R Shukla. Bahut Hua Samman is the hindi-heartland satire on the politics and corruption that depicts the reality of the nation in a humorous way and is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
