With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic still wreaking havoc on the world, several filmmakers are forced to prepare a new calendar for their films. Over the past two months, a number of movies have been postponed, while all shooting activities stand cancelled.

Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, the famous duo from Munnabhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and Lage Raho Munnabhai (2006) films, were set to team up once again for a rib-tickling comic-caper by well-known writers Sajid and Farhad Samji.

The makers were gearing up to commence the first shooting schedule of the movie in Budapest in April. But before they could begin production, the world went into complete lockdown and air-travel restrictions were imposed worldwide. The pandemic seems to have caused a massive overhaul in the shooting schedule of the untitled movie.

Reportedly, the film, which was earlier scheduled to be shot abroad, will be now completed in Goa. A source close to the development informs a tabloid, “The film underwent two major location changes. After Europe was severely hit by the pandemic, it became evident that the project would have to be set elsewhere. The makers then considered a stint in Thailand, which had to be scrapped soon after. With international travel being a remote possibility after the lockdown is lifted, Sajid-Farhad are now re-writing the script with Goa as the setting.”

Once the re-write is complete, Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi will allocate new shooting dates to the film. As far as the female lead is concerned, the makers are yet to announce the name officially.
