I have to make this blog posting because of my rights given to me by all the Sex And The City DVDs I own. Contrary to perception, the upcoming SATC2 movie (trailer here) will NOT be featuring a single scene from Abu Dhabi, even though the name is mentioned all over the place. All the scenes were shot in Morocco.
So how did this all happen? Well, how should I put this kindly. It seems there is a beauty competition for international tourism spotlight. Somehow AD decides to let its prettier neighbor to do the catwalk bearing its name - All in the name of boosting tourism! Ironically given the first SATC movie was pretty much banned in UAE, I doubt the new one will get shown here.
Don’t get me wrong, the city has its own charm – just not what is portrayed in the movie! Will the real Abu Dhabi please stand up?
