Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi’s film titled Merry Christmas created a lot of buzz since its announcement. The film is a thriller, to be directed by Andhadhun and Ek Haseena Thi fame, Sriram Raghavan.
The film’s core premise is inspired from a short film and the story is set in Pune. The film produced by Ramesh Taurani promises to be an edge of the seat thriller. As per sources, the film will have no room for an interval and will be a straight 90-minutes-long film. The shooting schedule will be of 30 days and some portions will be shot in Mumbai as well.
The film was supposed to go on floors in April this year but the shoot got postponed due to the second wave of COVID-19. The filmmaker had planned one marathon schedule in the city with his entire cast, including Katrina and Vijay Sethupathi.
Now, in an interview with Pinkvilla Taurani has confirmed, “We are looking at June. Now the planning will happen, only after the lockdown is over. We don’t have a date as yet because everything right now is shut. We can’t even shoot anywhere else as 90 percent of India is in a state of lockdown. But in the near future, maybe in a week or two we will decide on the future plan of action.”
The film is expected to roll in Mumbai, and will then move to Pune and Goa.
Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi is all set to begin shooting for Raj and DK’s web series also starring Shahid Kapoor and Raashi Khanna. He will also be seen in Santosh Sivan’s Mumbaikar’s with Vikrant Massey.
Katrina Kaif will soon be seen in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, Gurmeet Singh’s Phone Booth, Ali Abbas Zafar’s untitled female superhero film and Manish Sharma’s Tiger 3.
