Shetty has shot most of ‘Cirkus’ on sets and in Mumbai, but he’s got elaborate plans of going to the beach state. A source reveals, “The filmmaker will be going to Goa in October or November to can a song with the lead pair of the film.”
Rohit Shetty’s first tryst with Goa began with his first film in the Golmaal franchise and ever since, he’s made the location an integral part of all his subsequent movies. During an interaction at IFFI 2019, Shetty had professed his penchant to shoot in Goa and said, “I have shot 12 films here, 14 years ago I shot my first, Golmaal here. People are very positive in Goa, the landscape is beautiful. I have shot all across the state – right from North to South.”
Both Rohit and Ranveer Singh had shot in Goa for their previous film ‘Simmba’ as well. The filmmaker is currently in South Africa, shooting for the reality TV show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and he is expected to return to Mumbai in July. His latest directorial venture, ‘Sooryavanshi’, a cop saga that features Akshay Kumar in the lead role has been awaiting a theatrical release for over a year now.
It is believed that ‘Cirkus’ will feature Ranveer in a double role and the comedy will also feature other actors like Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Sharma and Murli Sharma. There was also speculation last year that the film could also have a special schedule based in Ooty, but in current times of Covid-related restrictions, that could prove to be difficult.
