Tum Bin, produced by Chairman and Managing Director of T-Series Music Label, Bhushan Kumar and directed by the successful Anubhav Sinha reunited after 14 years of the movie’s release to film the sequel. Tum Bin (meaning Without You) is based on a love story shattered by misfortune.

A women is left grief stricken after her fiancée’s accidental death in India. The family, founders of Shah Industries are in turmoil after their son’s death and the family business is in threat of collapsing around about them. Little do they know, all is not what it seems when a businessman walks into their lives to help restore the company.

Who knows who will show up in the sequel…

Talking about the jam packed day of filming, Mike Stewart, Business Development Director, Glasgow Prestwick Airport said:

“We were delighted to welcome the cast and crew of Tum Bin 2 to the airport. We have a wonderful facility that is underused at certain times of the day and this was a good opportunity to be able to showcase our terminal in film, whilst bringing in valuable revenue for the airport. This is something that we could facilitate for other production companies when we have quiet periods, but our long term goal remains filling downtime with more passenger flights.

“It was an exciting day and we had great feedback from staff and passengers who enjoyed having a brief stopover in Bollywood before heading off on their onward destinations.

Tum Bin 2 is due for release this year 2016.
