After a complete shutdown of several months, Bollywood is finally crawling back to the sets to shoot new films. Over the past two months, a number of movies have resumed shooting across the country, while others are set to follow suit soon.
According to reports, newcomer Siddhant Chaturvedi, who broke onto the scene with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy (2019), has also started shooting for his forthcoming film which Karan Johar is bankrolling under Dharma Productions.
The untitled film also features Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday on the primary cast. The romantic drama by filmmaker Shakun Batra went on floors in Goa. Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi have been in Goa for a couple of days now and today the latter confirmed that the first shooting schedule of the much-awaited film has finally commenced.
Chaturvedi shared a story on his Instagram account from the sets of the film. In the story shared by him, the crew members are seen sporting PPE kits. Along with the video, he wrote, “Let’s Roll”.
Though nothing much is known about the forthcoming film, it is said to be a take on modern-day relationships and will be targeting the youth audience of the country. A report suggests that the project is inspired by a popular Hollywood film, titled Match Point (2005).
A source close to the project recently told a publication, “While this film will be individualistic in its own way, Shakun’s love triangle is a lot like the Hollywood psychological thriller starring Scarlett Johansson.”
Shakun Batra, who last directed the critically and commercially successful Kapoor & Sons (2016), was earlier planning to shoot the film in Sri Lanka. However, he had to choose Goa as India is yet to lift the ban on air travel. The film is set to release early next year.
