Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Vikram Veda’ completes a day after the deadline. The last shooting schedule of this film was in Mumbai, which was to be completed by 31 May. However, the shooting was completed on June 1. The director of the film Gayatri is very happy that Hrithik Roshan has done a good job in the film. Sources related to the film have shared more special information from Dainik Bhaskar.
Lucknow and Kanpur recreated in Abu Dhabi
Hrithik liked a very controlled atmosphere on the sets. There was silence on the set as soon as he came there. Only things started happening. The story of the film starts from Kanpur. Via Lucknow, she ends up in Mumbai, where Hrithik’s character wants to rule. Interestingly, Lucknow and Kanpur were recreated in Abu Dhabi for the film. That recreation was completed at a place called Kizad in Abu Dhabi.
The film has been shot at multiple locations.
A source told about the last shooting schedule of the film, “The film has been shot at multiple locations. The song sequences of the film were shot in Mumbai in the last days of the last schedule. It is choreographed by Ganesh Hegde. Ganesh Hegde is actually Hrithik’s. Favorite choreographer partner. Hrithik might be playing the negative lead Veda in the film. Originally it was a cat and mouse chase between Vikram and Veda, but Hrithik kept his signature identity in the form of dance moves. So the dance sequence was shot for four to five days in Mumbai. That sequence was completed in Mud Island.”
Hrithik Roshan himself has done action scenes
In the film, Hrithik has done a technical parko action in terms of action. In simple language, the stunts that climb the walls without wires are called parco action. Hrithik Roshan has done it as Veda. Most of the sequences have been shot at Kalina University in Mumbai. Apart from this, the team shot the film in the same buildings of Pune University, where the recently discussed web series ‘Rocket Boys’ was shot. The Mumbai schedule began with a shoot at Yash Raj Studios in March this year. Initially there was shooting for four to five days. Then the shooting of the film was completed in early June at Filmcity, Mumbai University, Pune University and finally at Mud Island.
Hrithik loses 12 kgs for Younger Veda
Hrithik Roshan will be seen in 2 looks in the film. He lost 10 to 12 kg of weight to show the younger age Veda. Veda’s romantic angle has not been kept in the film. The shooting of this film lasted for 99 days. These were shot in Abu Dhabi for 30 days. Saif Ali Khan completed the remaining one month in Lucknow with his share Radhika Apte. Radhika is in the role of his wife in this. Radhika is a lawyer. She is Saif’s wife, but is fighting the case of Veda. The rest of the shooting took place in Mumbai. Hrithik completed his portions in Abu Dhabi and Mumbai. Saif was not present in the Abu Dhabi schedule, while Hrithik was not present in Lucknow Wale. In this way, both of them have given almost 45-45 days for the shoot of the film.
Now Hrithik will complete the shooting of ‘Fighter’
Saif is in the role of Inspector Vikram in this. The arguments and action portions of Vikram and Veda were shot in Mumbai. So the two were in the frame together in the Mumbai schedule. It is also clear that soon after this Hrithik will now work on Siddharth Anand’s ‘Fighter’. Together they have done films like ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘War’. However, Hrithik was busy with the script reading and finalizing the locations of the next part of his home banner ‘Krrish’. But, Hrithik will complete the shooting of ‘Fighter’ before that.
