Sanjay Dutt Comes Rajasthan with Aditi Rao Hydari and Sharad Kelkar to shoot for the climax scene of their forthcoming film ‘Bhoomi’ at Chand Baori, a stepwell situated in the village of Abhaneri near Jaipur.
The cast, director Omung Kumar and writer Raaj Shandilya reached Abhaneri on Wednesday and continued shooting till Thursday.
The crew will be returning to Agra today where they have more scenes to can. “We came here via road from Agra where we have been shooting for a month.
The reason behind coming to Abhaneri was that we wanted a stepwell-like structure for our climax scene; we wanted to shoot an action sequence. Chand Baori fitted our requirements,” Raaj said.
The writer added that the audience will get to see glimpses of Rajasthan in the film. “Before Chand Baori, we have shot at a few locations in Dholpur too.
The audience will get to see glimpses of Rajasthan, including the culture and some heritage monuments of the state in the film,” he said.
With Rajasthan reeling under simmering heat, Raaj told us that it was difficult for the actors to shoot, especially in the day time. “Agra wasn’t that hot. The actors had a tough time shooting at the location. But we had to complete the shoot within the given time,” said Raaj.
As per sources, the local police was deployed to make sure the shooting went on smoothly. However, a lot of fans flocked to the location, and a few even managed to click pictures with Sanjay.
