A few days ago, reports did round on the internet that Hrithik had refused to shoot the film in UP and had asked the makers to shift the location to Dubai that in turn had skyrocketed the film’s budget. There was no official confirmation or denial by the makers or the actor yet, but this morning Reliance Entertainment issued a clarification regarding the same.

The statement issued on social media read, We have been noticing a lot of misleading and totally unsubstantiated reporting on Vikram Vedha shooting locations. We clearly want to state that Vikram Vedha has been shot extensively in India, including Lucknow. A portion of the film was shot in United Arab Emirates in October-November of 2021 since it was the only location providing the infrastructure for a bio-bubble that accommodated crew of such scale, also allowing building of sets in a studio during the preceding months of the shoot. We chose to do that out of health and protocol concerns. Any attempt to twist these set of facts are clearly mischievous and untruthful.”

Check out the statement here:

The statement also indirectly rubbished rumours of Hrithik having a hand in the matter of choosing the shoot location. Also we would like to emphatically state that at Reliance Entertainment while we welcome suggestions from creative talent, the production and budgetary decisions are a centralized prerogative,” the statement read further.
