The best way to keep up to date with Gravesend RFC


Gravesend members play their part

2 years ago By Mike CUBITT

"Bollywood" came to Gravesham as filming was being partly shot locally, with rugby and cycling being staged at Cobham Hall.

Nine members from the rugby section volunteered to play a part in the staging of scenes for this new movie being shot at several locations in England.
The name of the film is 'Prem Keno Buhjini' ( Translation: Love I did not understand) the producer is Himanshu Dhanuka and production company is Filmbazar Ltd the Director Sudipto Sarkar and line production in the UK is Flame Visuals Ltd.
Although the rain this week has hampered the production many of the scenes have already been shot, with the sporting activities taking place last Saturday from 08.00 through to 17.00.
The team led by Mike Cubitt on the sidelines, with Gary Gray taking the lead role with the players, although all the lads played their part in educating the "Bollywood Star" Om, in the rudiments of the game of rugby.
Gary along with Charlie Cutting, Tom Bird and Ashley Moorey teamed up with Om with Ashley Frampton, Reece Betts, Conor Davies, Matt Hewitt and Chris Brady being set as the opposition.
After several hours of shooting which included the use of drone camera, the action was finalised, several tries for the hero, Om, for inclusion in the film that will have its premier in October this year.
The younger players, "the creche" stayed on and also took part in the filming of the off road biking that makes up part of the film's sporting action, with of course Om winning all the races.
The guys have helped to gain a £400 donation to rugby section funds
