The banks of the river Jhelum in Jammu and Kashmir's beautiful capital Srinagar hummed with unusual activity when a Bollywood film crew descended there for an outdoor shoot. Starring Juhi Chawla and Manisha Koirala, the short film Megha is directed by Onir (of My Brother... Nikhil fame).

Ironically, the locale is not the famous Mughal garden. Instead, it is a park in an enclosed plot on the banks of the Jhelum.

The park had come up three years ago as part of the beautification of the river, with houseboats lining the shore.
