Prakash Jha's RAJNEETI has been in the news constantly, making it one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And we have been giving you latest updates about its shooting. The last shooting schedule that took place in Bhopal was in February and most of the scenes that required to be shot in crowded places (like Nehru Nagar Maidan, Gauher Mahal, Arif Maidan etc) have already been canned. The director had promised to come back to the city of lakes for more shooting.
Keeping his promise, Prakash Jha reached Bhopal on Monday for location hunting. He told the media that shooting in Bhopal was a memorable experience and he was in the city once again. He added that he has already earmarked many locations that will feature in his political drama. He also revealed that all the major stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Nana Patekar, Naseeruddin Shah and Gulshan Grover will take part in the shoot. However, Ranbir is expected to be the star attraction, since this will be his first visit to the city.
The scenes that are to left to be canned involve places that are not very crowded like VIP road, old Vidhan Sabha road, MP Nagar Zone 2 and the Boat Club. Shooting is expected to commence from September 4th and will continue till the first week of November. The stars will come and go as per their shooting schedule.
Here's hoping that Jha's 'on-screen' RAJNEETI turns out to be much more fruitful, as compared to his failed real life 'Rajneeti' (politics) in Bihar, where he lost in the Lok Sabha polls.
