Breaking – Rohit Shetty first to shoot at ‘Gateway of India’ post 26/11


Bollywood’s 100 crore spinner,director Rohit Shetty is busy with the shoot of his film ‘Singham Returns‘ . He is known for his penchant of shooting in the picturesque locations of Goa. This time around he has focused upon Aamchi Mumbai like never before. Rohit Shetty recently became the first filmmaker to shoot at the Gateway of India post the 26/11 terror attacks.

According to sources, Shetty has shot in the exotic corners of Mumbai as the story of Singham Returns revolves around Mumbai city. He has not only shot in iconic sites of the city but also certain here-before unexplored remote places and the by-lanes of Mumbai too. The team has shot in places which are rarely seen on the silver screen like Reay Road, Cotton Green, Urankhanwadi Chawl, Mahim Durgah, and JJ Fylover which are very difficult to shoot at owing to the places being crowded.

Sources further added that, “Rohit sir is very particular about the locations in his films and for Singham Returns since the story revolves in Mumbai, he wanted to shoot at places which show the real Mumbai.”

Singham Returns has Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor. It is produced by Ajay Devgn Films, Rohit Shetty Productions and Reliance Entertainment.

All set for release this Independence Day on August 15, 2014.
