Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is gearing up for the release of his youth political drama streaming series Garmi, grew 6 feet tall barley fields for a sequence in the series to lend authenticity and make the world of the series believable.

Sharing his experience on the scene, he said: "We spent 1.5 months growing 6 feet tall barley fields to capture the essence of the scene. I believe in keeping the show real to bring out the right emotions and connect with the audience. On the last day of the Allahabad schedule, the scene was shot, which turned out to be the highlight of the show."

The show tells the story of Arvind Shukla, a young man who moves out of his hometown to become a civil servant. While on recce for the show, Dhulia realized it was difficult to find tall barley fields for a particular scene. Rather than building an artificial set, he decided to grow barley from scratch near the shoot location in his hometown, Allahabad.

Produced by Swaroop Sampat and Hemal Ashok Thakkar, the show is directed by Dhulia. Garmi features Mukesh Tiwari, Vineet Kumar, Pankaj Saraswat, Jatin Goswami, Vyom Yadav, Puneet Singh, Anurag Thakur, Anushka Kaushik, Disha Thakur, and Dheerendra Gautam in pivotal roles. Garmi will be available to stream from April 21 on Sony LIV.
