‘Badla’: Sujoy Ghosh chose Scotland instead of his favourite Kolkata – here’s why
According to a report in CineBlitz, director of ‘Badla’, Sujoy Ghosh has ditched his favourite city Kolkata. Instead, he chose to shoot the film in the snowy atmosphere of Scotland. Kolkata has featured majorly in most of Sujoy’s works.
Sujoy said, “Had the film been shot in Kolkata, we would have had to do away with Mr Bachchan’s sharp-suited, dapper look of an investigator in the film and made him look like Byomkesh Bakshi.”
The director further added, “Not that we would not have loved to see him in that avatar. The premise of ‘Badla’ was such that it needed the leads to be in a certain set-up. The eerie atmosphere of Scotland naturally lends itself to adding layers of mystery to the thriller. There’s a certain melancholic vibe to the snowed in places there which we wanted to tap.”
‘Badla’ is a revenge thriller and Amitabh and Taapsee are once again reuniting after acting together in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s ‘Pink’. Sujoy Ghosh is known for a different kind of cinema and always wants to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
