Gowariker’s TV show Everest based on mountaineering

Ashutosh Gowariker’s AGPPL that forays into television with the production of fiction show ‘Everest’ has collaborated with the mountaineering institute Nehru Institute Of Mountaineering (NIM), Uttarakashi. The show is said to be based on mountaineering and the lead actors will get trained at this mountaineering institute along with a major portion of the show being shot in that location.

Ashutosh expressed his gratitude towards the Ministry of Defence, Govt. Of Uttarakhand and Col. Ajay Kothiyal, Principal NIM, for extending their support and opening the gates of NIM. He said, “This is my first visit to Uttarakhand. I am amazed to see the picturesque beauty of Uttarkashi. Despite the tragedy that befell this entire region, it’s heartening to see the way the people of Uttarkashi have come to terms with it and life is once again normal. I am happy to be shooting here for the next two months after which we will move to Nepal.”

NIM Principal Col. Ajay Kothiyal said, “Gangotri valley, post 2013 disaster, is today considered as a dangerous place, thus badly affecting the economy of the region. Mr Ashutosh Gowariker’s plans to shoot for the television show here is not only going to be a major step in changing the image created in the environment, after the tragedy, but will also provide employment opportunity to the people from the area.”

Conceptualized by Ashutosh Gowariker, ‘Everest’ will be directed by Glenn and Ankush.
