Ali Fazal’s most awaited film, VICTORIA AND ABDUL with Judi Dench, which is a British-American biographical drama which is directed by Stephen Frears.
The film is based on the book along the same title written by Shrabani Basu. The film is to be majorly shot in Agra and London as it revolves around Queen Victoria and her confidante Abdul Karim, played by Judi and Ali respectively.
The last leg of the shoot in India at Agra was left disrupted. However there were certain communal tensions against the installation of a statue of Queen Victoria, the makers of the film were left panicked. To avoid hindrance in the shoot, the makers try to recreate Agra on the sets in London to finish the final peg.
The film is all set to release later this year, but there has been a major change along the way, and now Agra is being taken in parts to London to make it up for the film’s major scenes that were left unfinished here.
According to sources, “The team was planning to shoot in India and was even prepping for it. However owing to the earlier circumstances and situation, they finally decided to not shoot here. Instead since the shoot left was that of market areas and houses, they planned to stick to recreating the sets in the outskirts of London which was more feasible for them. This would be the final schedule of the film before its release in September.”
Kudos to team!
