Film Director, Sanjay Khanduri seems to be following the footsteps of SRK, and is leaving no stone unturned for the making of his pet project GYARAH CHALIS KI LAST METRO, which is a sequel to the hit EK CHALIS KI LAST LOCAL. The film is already being spoken about a lot, since the lead of the original has now been replaced by Vivek Oberoi in the sequel GYRAH CHALIS KI LAST METRO which is being produced by Amit Chandrra under his banner Invincible Entertainment.
The director recently visited Delhi for his recce as majority of the film would be shot in the capital unlike the first. The film will have Vivek playing a middle class Punjabi Munda who will end up missing the last metro and will come face to face with the capital's crazy nocturnal beings. But the director ended up falling in a soup when he was busy clicking pics at a certain Delhi metro station and his crew hopped on to the train and moved on to the next destination leaving him behind since he was so engrossed in capturing a particular metro station locale.
He was held up by the officials there since the required permissions were with the production crew who had moved onto another station. Photography is strictly prohibited at metro stations for obvious security reasons. His phone was also with his assistant who had also moved onto another station with the production crew. It took him a lot of convincing to tell them that it was for a film recce and the pictures were a part of his study and his crew members had prior written permissions. He failed to persuade them that he was scouting for locations as the metro plays an important part in his films narrative. The director paid a fine for the same but an issue took place when the authorities seized his camera.
The same mattered a lot to him since he had all his recce pictures that he had shot over the last 7 days. It was then when the production crew got back via the next metro and showed necessary paperwork. While they were going through the papers, co incidentally Vivek Oberoi called on producer Amit Chandrra's phone and the head of security saw the actors name flashing. He requested to speak to the actor and was thrilled to hear his 'maya bhai' on the other side of the line.
Vivek also confirmed that the crew was there for his film and the security head felt really happy and fortunate to get to speak to one of his favourite actors by a stroke of chance. The tension eased completely and all were allowed to leave with the camera equipment since all papers were fine and Vivek himself confirmed the film to them on phone. Khanduri was finally relieved and returned a happy man thanking his star actor to have called at just the right time.
The film would be shot extensively in Delhi and unlike the original, the movie would stem up its glamour quotient adding to the glitz making it way more commercial then the original. The makers are going all out to shoot in the most posh places of Delhi and are leaving no stone unturned to get all necessary permissions for shoot to make the film more spunky and new age.
