Mumbai: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji, who are currently working on Reema Kagti’s untitled film, have refused to shoot the climax due to water woes.
The sequence was supposed to be shot in Khopoli, but due to dirty water, the crew and cast have now decided to shoot the sequence abroad, tentatively Bangkok.
A source from the crew informed a daily, “There is an important accident scene in the film where Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor`s vehicles collide and fall into a river.
The entire sequence is shot under underwater. It`s a very important scene and will be extensively shot for more than five days.”
Since the plot of the film is realistic, most of the scenes have been shot in natural locations to ensure they go with the theme.
The source further revealed, Reema was clear that she wanted to shoot the underwater sequence in an actual water body (a lake or a river) instead of a man-made set.
So after a recce, the production team settled for Khopoli, a small industrial town 70 kilometers away from Mumbai.”
The source continued, “The crew reached Khopoli and shot the accident scene at the river for a day. Since it is an industrial town, the actors felt that the water was not very clean.
It was then decided to shoot at the huge swimming pool of the Navy training school in Khopoli, but the tiles of the pool just didn`t look authentic.
So after a lot of thought, Reema and Aamir decided to cancel the shoot there.”
Reema confirmed to a tabloid, “The visibility was a problem though the water was clean. But we have not fixed where we are doing the sequence yet.”
However, the source has revealed, “It will now happen next month, most probably in Bangkok. They will have to match everyone`s dates once again.
Kareena is busy with the promotions of ‘Bodyguard,’ so the shoot will happen after she is free.”
