Shooting of Spanish Masala started on First of August, in Madrid’s Jardines- de Sabatini. Switch on was done at the Roof top of the hotel. In Keralam, we usually light the traditional lamp, but as we were in Spain, there was a slight change from routine. Dileep lighted a candle and producer Noushad switched on the camera. Script writer Benny, Actors Biju Menon , Nelson and others along with Camera man Loganathan and the whole crew were present. Spanish – Malayalam translator Haritha and the rest of production personnel were there too.
We started with a song sequence of Dileep and Daniela. Though the summer is here in full strength, I was the least amused to see it drizzling as we started. All my friends in the crew had a smile. From nowhere the clouds gathered and lo! It’s commonplace for all my films to get a rain or drizzle in the beginning as if Mother Nature is showering us with blessings!
