After the Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon-starrer Heropanti, Sajid Nadiadwala’s launch pad for another star kid, Ahan Shetty, is ready to take off. The Milan Luthria directorial features Tara Sutaria as the leading lady opposite Suneil Shetty’s son and kicks off today at a single screen theatre in South Mumbai with a brief schedule.
According to a source close to the development, a major chunk of the yet-untitled film will be shot in Mussoorie. “Ahan’s character runs a movie theatre there. The scene with which the schedule is starting has a lot of drama,” Milan shares, adding that recce for the schedule involved visits to a lot of cinema halls in the Maximum City, from Navrang to Aurora, Deepak and Novelty, but the team finally zeroed down on Central Plaza as it is neither vintage nor swanky and therefore fit the bill.
Asking Milan about his choice of subject, and he says, “Doing a candy floss romance didn’t seem like the way to go for a guy like Ahan. Sajid and I come from a commercial background wherein films ride on drama, action and confrontations with twists and turns. I loved the original film and we have adapted it to suit Hindi audience’s sensibilities. It’s dramatic and an unexpected story.”
Admitting that there’s a sense of added responsibility while launching a new face, Sajid adds, “RX 100 is a different film from the ones we have made recently. That said, Ahan has prepped well and has done his homework. I feel it’s a great start and very nostalgic (the first film that Suniel signed as an actor was Sajid’s prduction Waqt Hamara Hai). I hope the audience will love his talent as much as Milan and I do.” he signs off.
