Director Sanjay Gupta uses Bombay instead of Mumbai for Shootout at Wadala!
Writer-director Sanjay Gupta, who is back again to shoot the second schedule of his Shootout at Wadala, is done with the first major part of the film.
Sanjay opines that styling the films has become the trend in B-town now. He confessed that he faced problems shooting for the film as this is the biopic which is set in the era of 3 decades back in Mumbai. He states that portraying Bombay in times of Mumbai was so hard with minimum VFX.
Sanjay further clarifies, “Yes, what you would see in the film is the Bombay of the 70s. The entire skyline has been changed while huge effort has been put into removing new models of cars that have flooded the roads and instead bring in old models. There is also a requirement to show some buildings from the 70s, which were under construction then. This means that the iconic Air India and Oberoi buildings would be seen as never before. Of course this requires high quality VFX.”
Shootout at Wadala is a multi starrer film as it would have Manoj Bajpai, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor,Tusshar Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Sonu Sood,Mahesh Manjrekar, Ronit Roy and Ranjeet. The film is slotted for January 2013 release.
