It's a well known fact that many filmmakers whose movies are based in the state of Bihar have more often than not deterred from shooting their project in the state. The reasons are lack of infrastructure and basic facilities and most importantly due to security threats to stars.

Even a maker like Prakash Jha who belongs to Bihar and most of the stories of his films are Bihar based (though not said clearly) has not dared to shoot there. The latest example is the super hit DABANGG. The director Abhinav Kashyap (who too hails from Bihar/Jharkhand like his esteemed brother Anurag Kashyap) did not shoot his film in the state due to security reasons, even though the story required it and despite affirmation of every possible support from the Bihar government and Shatrughan Sinha.

Another film that has its story based entirely in Bihar is Priyadarshan's AAKROSH. Even though honour killings is now a National menace yet Priyan has based his story in Jhanjhargaon in Bihar but like all other film makers he too has not shot AAKROSH in Bihar but in Karaikudi in Chennai.

CHECK OUT: Does AAKROSH have a Hollywood inspiration?

In fact Priyan has brought Bihar to Chennai. The director has managed to capture the beauty of Chennai and has chosen the locales cleverly; giving touches and making them look like a small town of Bihar. So the viewer watching AAKROSH will not even understand that the film which is Bihar based has been shot entirely in the South.

Well, especially after the super success of DABANGG it's easy to say that the audience taste has changed and now small towns and cities too make for a good watch as long as the story is interesting and script water tight.
