Unit members of Saif Ali Khan-Vidyut Jamwal's film decide to shoot its next schedule in UP itself, instead of moving to Rajasthan
The unit of Tigmanshu Dhulia's Saif Ali Khan-starrer yesterday moved to Etawah in Uttar Pradesh for their next schedule.
After wrapping up a long shooting stint in Lucknow, the director was keen to shoot
in Dholpur in Rajasthan -- where he had shot his earlier project Paan Singh Tomar. But the unit instead decided to move elsewhere in UP itself.
Says a source, `Producer Rahul Mittra's proximity to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav as well as Mulayam Singh Yadav helped them get the necessary permissions soon. The Yadavs hail from Etawah.
Thanks to their support, they had managed to shoot at various locations of Lucknow as well.`
Mittra confirms, `Etawah was a better option than Dholpur and more importantly we liked the location. So we decided to shoot there instead. Also it is close to Kanpur and Agra and has better connectivity.`
Meanwhile Commando actor Vidyut Jamwal, who replaced Irrfan in the film, too joined the unit in Etawah yesterday. He will be choreographing the action sequences in the film himself.
Vidyut to compose fights for Bullett Raja
By Subhash K Jha
Although Tigmanshu Dhulia's new project Bullett Raja has an official action director Parvez Khan (who's done heart-in-the-mouth stunts in Ra. One, Vishwaroop and Agent Vinod) it's the new action-star Vidyut Jamwal
who will compose his own stunts for the film.
Vidyut who steps into a doughty cop's role that was to be played by Irrfan Khan would be making a very special appearance in the film. And the action-star will make his appearance as special as possible.
Explains Tigmanshu, `Vidyut would have two action sequences in Bullett Raja and he'd be composing the stunrts. we have the amazing Parvez Bhai composing all the stunts for the film's leading man Saif Ali Khan.
But Vidyut knows his body and mind better than anyone else. He has been training in the martial arts since the age of 12. Who better to know how his character would deal with the combative crisis in the plot?`
Jamwal's first fight would show him taking on dacoits in the Chambal Valley.
`Jamwal enters the story at mid-point right after intermission. His character of the cop takes on the Chambal dacoits.
The second fight sequence would be staged in the city of Lucknow. They'd be antithetical in
ambience mood and impact. I leave it to Vidyut to design and execute these fights in such a way that he makes optimum impact, ` says Dhulia who is currently shooting in Etawah city of Uttar Pradesh for Bullett Raja.
`I am having great fun shooting the film. I suspect the audience would enjoy themselves just as much, ` says Dhulia.
