Publicity gimmick or a mere coincidence? Our sources tell us that director Rakesh Saini, who is currently shooting his project on slain nurse Bhanwari Devi, has filmed a sequence in the same jail where Salman Khan was housed a few years ago. The actor was put up at Central Jail in Jodhpur in connection to a criminal case against him.
Our source adds, “Saini shot in the same cell that was once occupied by Sallu.” Actress Sadhika Randhawa is playing Bhanwari, who becamea victim of molestation and murder more than a decade ago. According to our informer, while most of the film has been shot in Mumbai, certain parts have been filmed at the original locations in Jodhpur, especially at Central Jail where Bhanwari’s husband was lodged.
Producer Ranjeet Sharma says, “I have taken the necessary permissions from Bhanwari’s husband Amarchand and their lawyers. The whole idea to shoot in the jail was to give it a real-life feel. Shooting in the same cell as Salman’s is purely a coincidence.”
