It’s been a dream experience for us to be filming in Dubai. Line production support by Icon Art Production has been truly out of this world and brand support by Event Brokers DMCC has been truly heartwarming. And the first time the whole shoot has been managed by The Social Street, headed by Pamita, that has pulled off a very intricate schedule at very short notice.”
He added, “Overall, Dubai is the dream destination for filming. With all its diverse locations, the entire Emirate provides an open-air stage to film in, which any filmmaker aspires to have. Dubai has state-of-the-art infrastructure and advanced production facilities that is found in world class cities.”
Pratap Bose, Chairman & Founding Partner, The Social Street, said, “We are very happy to be associated with HOPE Productions and R Balki.

Pamita Seth, Managing Partner, The Social Street, added here, “Dubai is one of the key markets for Bollywood, multiple projects are being shot in the UAE. This is our second project this year, we were here earlier for the promotions of ‘Shamitabh’, the campaign being ‘The Hunt for the voice of Shamitabh – Amitabh Bachchan’, which was hosted by the Ritz Carlton DIFC and Premier Productions. Now that we have established our love for Dubai, hopefully we will be back with another interesting idea, shoot or activation soon. This trip has unfolded newer business opportunities in the international markets and has helped us redefine services that we can offer to a production house.”
‘Ki and Ka’ is about two people with contrasting ideologies. While Arjun essays a progressive house husband, who lovingly supports his wife’s ambitions, Kareena portrays a super ambitious career-oriented woman in the film. The film is slated to release in 2016.
