Delhi comes to Mumbai for Salman's 'Kick'
Nitin Desai to recreate the streets of the national capital at his studio in Karjat for Sajid Nadiadwala's upcoming film
The famous ND Studio is gearing up for a major overhaul, as the makers of Kick are planning to recreate Delhi’s bustling Chandni Chowk and Connaught Place there. The work on the massive sets has already begun and sources say it will cost the makers whopping Rs 16 crore.
After Sajid Nadiadwala’s London schedule for the film was cancelled owing to Salman Khan’s visa woes, there was buzz that portions of the film would be shot in Delhi. Looks like the director has decided to settle for the studio in Karjat.
Says an insider, “We realised it would have been a daunting task to shoot on the streets of Delhi, given Salman’s popularity with the masses. Nitin Desai is recreating Delhi at his studio.” To help in travelling, Salman apparently has decided to park himself at his Panvel home for the time period. Nadiadwala remained unavailable for comment.
