Today, Indian romantic comedy Duvvada Jagannadham (DJ), which was filmed in the UAE with the support of Abu Dhabi Film Commission (ADFC) and twofour54, has released its latest trailer ahead of the film’s cinematic debut this summer.

The Telugu-language movie was written and directed by Harish Shankar and filmed at various locations across Abu Dhabi, including Abu Dhabi Global Market, Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), Intercontinental Hotel, Yas Links Golf Club and Galleria Mall, with access to twofour54’s production services.

Starring Allu Arjun and Pooja Hedge, DJ tells the story of love blossoming between their characters in the midst of being treated for various neuro-related disorders.

The production reinforces efforts by ADFC to attract regional and international productions to the emirate.

Abu Dhabi has seen a surge in interest as a location for Indian filmmakers, and DJ, with 120 members of crew and more than 40 dancers, marked the first from the Telugu industry, or ‘Tollywood’ as it is affectionately known.

In addition to DJ, Abu Dhabi has attracted a number of international film productions in recent years, including Bollywood film’s Tiger, Bang Bang, Baby and Dishoom as well as War Machine, starring Brad Pitt, and two of the top six films of all time, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Fast & Furious 7.
