The director Rajkumar Gupta of Ghanchakkar plans to shoot his lead pair Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan in busy areas of South Mumbai with secret cameras. Such locational liberties with two of the most popular stars in places like Worli, Nariman Point, Colaba and Fort, appears potentially dangerously.
Laughs Gupta, “It is suicidal. I plan to shoot with them in South Mumbai from the second week of September with secret cameras. But I can’t predict how secret Emraan and Vidya’s impromptu presence on the crowded streets and sites of South Mumbai can be. While we are shooting in relatively quiet spots of Mumbai in August during the rains, the September schedule is a b.tch.”
Emraan and Vidya need substantial workshop training to face the camera as a loud boisterous Punjabi couple.
Says Gupta, “They play characters they’ve never played before. It a challenge to them as much to me. I am sure Emraan will accommodate us as much as possible.”
Freshly joining the Ghanchakkar cast are, Rajesh Sharma, who played the helpful cop in Gupta’s No One Killed Jessica, and Namit Das the bright young actor who played Ranbir Kapoor‘s pal in Wake Up Sid.
