Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Vikram Vedha’ has hit a roadblock. According to the reports, the makers were all set to erect a set for the Hindi remake of R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi’s hit Tamil movie. Even the material for the sets had reached Mumbai’s Film City and the artisans had already been appointed. But the COVID-19 had spoiled all the plans once again. While following the opening of lockdown, many filmmakers have started their pending shoots, but the new Delta-plus variant of COVID-19 has made people cautious. Now filmmakers are either postponing their schedules or shifting their shoots abroad.
Following this, the makers of the Hrithik-Saif movie have also decided to shoot abroad. TOI quoted a source as saying, “The Mumbai schedule will be done but later.”
Adds the source, “It’s a call that was taken yesterday. It wasn’t an easy call to take, no doubt, but the fact that it’s going to be a costly set made the makers take the safer route rather than be sorry later.”
The daily also reported that General Secretary of FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees), Ashok Dubey, had also confirmed ‘Vikram Vedha’ are not commencing the in Mumbai for now.
The film will be directed by Pushkar-Gayatri and produced by Neeraj Pandey and Reliance Entertainment.
