Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who has taken the indie cinema route with “Mulk”, might release the making of a recce video shot to document the journey of the upcoming film’s team.
Sinha and his team of four went on a recce for the film in Uttar Pradesh earlier this week and recorded a feat of being the first economical commercial film recce.
“Anubhav sir has always been very careful when it comes to budgeting on a film and is always of the opinion that there should never be unnecessary splurging on a film. Right from carpooling in Lucknow to eating street food in dhabas to flying economy, we didn’t really waste any money,” executive producer Sagar Shirgaonkar of Benaras Media Works, said in a statement.
“We spent close to Rs 80,000 cumulative for five nights for four people which is quite unbelievable, but it is a collective decision to treat ‘Mulk’ as a indie film.”
Generally during a film recce, huge budgets are reserved, but they wanted to experiment a little and wanting to make the “impossible” possible.
“Maybe once the film goes on floors, Anubhav sir will release the making of the recce video we shot to document our journey,” said Shirgaonkar.
The social-thriller, based on true life events, will go on floors in October.
Starring Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Prateik Babbar and Rajat Kapoor, the film be shot in Varanasi and Lucknow.
