Setting the Scene For ‘Student Forever’ — The Teachers’ Day Film

Behind the Scenes Student Forever Teachers Day Film

Learning is a journey that never ends. The Teachers’ Day Film carries this sentiment throughout, piecing together a moving montage of a teacher’s life.

The story begins in a library, where our beloved professor, played by the talented Amit Singh Thakur, is making notes. As he goes about the rest of his day, he never stops learning — be it from a newspaper article, or from a child he meets on his morning walk. The film ends in a classroom, where the professor’s love for learning and teaching come together as one.

The Student Forever film makes us realise that our teachers had more than one role to play — they had to become students first. While we grew up and moved on, they never put their books down, even after the bell rang at the end of the day.

Day 2 of the shoot was at this cute cottage, nestled on the hills of Mussorie. The place was called home for the story and for the crew as they worked hard from dawn to dusk.

Unexpected downpour — despite the unpredictable weather, the crew made it work. They even shot the car scene in the pouring rain, which one might call a happy accident as it looked all the more beautiful.
