‘Ghanchakkar’ to be shot with guerrilla style of film makingRajkumar Gupta’s forthcoming ‘Ghanchakkar’ needs to be shot in some busy locales of Mumbai, but acquiring permissions for shooting in these places involves a lot of financial pressure and long delays. So, the makers have decided to go for guerilla style of film making at various public locations in Mumbai. That is how Gupta had shot Rajeev Khandelwal in ‘Aamir’.
As such, in the coming two months, the lead pair of the movie, Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan will shoot for the movie with a skeletal crew and hidden cameras. The idea is to land in without warning, wrap up the shoot and leave before the public is aware of their presence.
Gupta confirms the report saying, “After we finish shooting the initial spell in the studio we go on the streets to do some guerrilla filmmaking. It’s risky, yes. And Vidya and Emraan are very popular faces for whom anonymity will be nearly impossible. But I’ve never made safe films. And my actors are game. So let’s see how it goes.”
Initially, the shooting was supposed to begin in September, and Gupta had to curb his desire to shoot the stars drenched in the monsoon rains, but now, the shooting has been preponed to August.
Gupta narrated, “I had originally planned an August schedule. And Vidya, who is at the moment doing no other film, was completely one with my film’s schedule. But Emraan was busy promoting ‘Raaz 3? in August as the film was supposed to release at the end of August.
But now I believe ‘Raaz 3? has been pushed forward, so I got the window to shoot the scenes that I wanted. I guess I am just lucky…”
However, shooting with Rajeev was a different issue. It would be risky to shoot in such a way with Emraan and Vidya as they are quite popular faces.
“I agree. But both are used to shooting in the crowded outdoors. If Vidya could brave the Kolkata crowds in ‘Kahaani’ and the Delhi crowd in my film ‘No One Killed Jessica’, then Mumbai would be a cakewalk in comparison,” says Gupta.
