Recently Aanand L Rai took off to Rajasthan with director Navdeep Singh to scout for locations. Since the film will be based in the 18th century and depict the era during which the Battle of Buxar was fought, it will be shot in parts of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
Says a source, "The location needs to depict the era during which the Battle of Buxar was fought between the British East India Company, and the combined forces of the Nawabs of Bengal and Awadh and the Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II. Areas in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh will best suit the scale and landscape that Navdeep is looking at and he along with Aanand L Rai traveled to Rajasthan recently to lock on a few locations.”
Right now no other details are available. It seems Anand and Navdeep first want to get the location right then other details like cast and crew will be finalized.
