Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan’s Kedarnath recently completed their first shoot in the foothills of Himalayas.
The team now begin shooting for the second schedule within a few days in Mumbai and looks like a huge set has been set up in Mumbai’s Film City.
According to a source:
“They have replicated the entire holy city at a whopping cost. A model of the Kedarnath temple has also been designed. Since the film is an inter-faith love story, set against the backdrop of the devastating Uttarakhand floods, the makers plan to shoot the flood sequences now. Hence, this will be the city that will go under the water. Huge water tankers, too, are going to be made available for the shoot. Prernaa Arora and Abhishek Kapoor, who are co-producing the film, didn’t want to compromise on their vision. Building the whole set has cost them a whopping Rs 7 crore. In recent times, this is one of the biggest sets that has been created.”
Woahh! That is hell a lot of money.
The source added:
“They shot the major portions in Kedarnath during the first schedule, but they cannot shoot the flood scenes there. It has to be done in a controlled environment. So, they decided to put in money to recreate Kedarnath in Mumbai itself.”
Well, we hope the hard work pays off.
