On the 25th November, myself and seven fellow dancers travelled to Chennai for a four day night shoot. Chennai is a city in South India and the fourth largest in the country. As we flew in I could see that the buildings of the city were all different colours and fairly low in height - a nice change from Mumbai's maze of beige/cream high rise apartment blocks. On the drive from the airport to our hotel I also noticed there were loads of cows wandering around at the edges and sometimes on the busy roads. Unlike the black and white dairy cows I am used to seeing at home, these were huge creatures with humps on their backs, folds of extra skin underneath their necks and huge horns which were painted red. I have seen a few cows like this in Mumbai, but here they seemed to be everywhere! Unfortunately, as I was shooting a film song 6pm - 6am each night and then sleeping most of the day, I didn't really get a chance to see much more of Chennai, however the set we were working on was beautiful.
