New Delhi, Feb 8 (IANS) Debutant director Sachin Gupta will shoot "Paranthe Wali Gali" in busy alleys of the walled city to get the right flavour and says his film will capture rich architecture of the city and that he is ready for the challenges.

"Paranthe Wali Gali", a romantic drama, revolves around a serious guy (Anuj Saxena) and what happens to him when he meets an outspoken Sikh girl essayed by Neha Pawar.

"We are trying to capture the rich architecture of old Delhi by shooting on real location. I think visually Delhi is very rich and we are trying to capture that aspect in the film," Gupta, who will start filming here from Feb 11, told IANS.

He was here Friday for a press conference and to talk about his shooting plans in the capital.

Shooting in the narrow lanes of the congested old Delhi won't be trouble, but Gupta, 30, is ready for challenges.

"There are challenges and that's fine. Because if you do something in your comfort zone, it reflects in your movie. So, we are trying to show our best. I am prepared for whatever happens. Let's hope for the best," said the director who has done three Broadway shows in New York and has been associated with theatre as well.

This is not the first time that a movie will highlight the culture of Old Delhi. Earlier Karan Johar, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Nikhil Advani and Shivam Nair tried to capture the old world charm of the place in "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", "Delhi-6", "Chandni Chowk To China" and "Ahista Ahista" respectively.

What about comparisons with other movies?

"I think every movie is different because they have different stories. This not just for Delhi people. The characters are such that any Indian in the world can connect to them," said Gupta.
