Curious to know more about Mehreen Jabbar's next feature film, Dobara Phir Se?

The shoot of Dobara Phir Se, which is set in New York, moved to Westport, Connecticut for a scene, where director Jabbar dished a tidbit or two about the film to the local press.

She revealed that her film included a character of a divorced Pakistani woman based in New York who visits an upscale Connecticut suburb to visit her estranged ex-mother-in-law.

Jabbar's films are sure to complement a gripping story with the right visual experience. For this scene, she had a vintage Cadillac brought in:

The scene was shot on the William F. Cribari Bridge in Westport, which was selected for its picturesque quality. “It’s quaint and small and surrounded by water,” she said. “It provides an ideal backdrop in the film for an entrance to a beautiful town.”

A nearby Dunkin Donuts outlet served as their make-up room, the local community news site Westport Now reported. Here's make-up artist Nida Khan putting the final touches on Hareem Farooq's look for the scene:
