Vikram Vedha Issue Statement Regarding ‘Fake’ Shooting Reports
Last updated on July 25th, 2023 at 11:21 am
There have been rumors circulating for the past few days about Vikram Vedha shooting locations. Thus producers have released a statement to clear such misleading reports.
The filming of Pushkar & Gayatri’s Vikram Vedha, which featured Radhika Apte and Hrithik Roshan in supporting parts and Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan in the lead roles, was completed in June 2022.
The movie is a Hindi remake of the R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi-starring original of the same name.
Now, after it was stated that Hrithik Roshan declined to shoot in Uttar Pradesh, which caused the budget to soar, the producers have resorted to social media to explain certain rumors.
Vikram Vedha Official Statement
The makers of Vikram Vedha have issued a statement to clear all the ‘misleading’ reports & rumors. The statement explains,
“We have been noticing a lot of misleading and totally unsubstantiated reporting on Vikram Vedha shoot locations.
We clearly want to state that Vikram Vedha has been shot extensively in India, including Lucknow. A portion of the film was shot in the United Arab Emirates in October-November of 2021.
As it was the only location providing infrastructure for a bio-bubble that accommodated a crew of such scale, also allowing the building of sets in a studio during the preceding months of the shoot.
We chose to do that out of health and protocol concerns. Any attempts to twist this set of facts are clearly mischievous and untruthful.
Also, we would like to emphatically state that at Reliance Entertainment while we welcome suggestions from the creative talent, the production and budgetary decisions are a centralized prerogative.”
Official Clarification After Rumor
This statement follows a number of earlier stories that said Hrithik Roshan had reportedly objected to filming in Uttar Pradesh and preferred Dubai as the destination. The budget had exploded because of the shift of location.
