Cinematographer Anil Mehta tells us about unpredictable forces that can affect a film shoot, and how the crew must work around them. In this episode of Inside A Scene, he tells us about shooting the song Ghanan Ghanan from Lagaan which is centred around the villagers waiting for the rains. Mehta elaborates on why he had only 20 minutes to shoot an entire sequence, the challenges of creating a cloud cover, and how the choreography had to be changed.
