There is some concern brewing over the shooting of director Reema Kagti’s untitled film in an actual red light area. Would it be entirely safe for the lead actors Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor is the question. It was reported earlier that portions of the film will be shot in the bro-thels of Kamatipura.
“There are security concerns about shooting the film in a real location i.e. a bro-thel. Firstly, it disturbs the daily routine of the area and the occupants fear that the shooting will disrupt their business. Moreover, there are some serious security concerns over shooting with stars of the stature of Aamir Khan, Rani and Kareena,” says a source in the loop of developments.
It remains to be seen whether Kareena and Rani will agree to shoot their film in Kamatipura. But if sources are to be believed, both actors are not too keen on shooting in that location. “The location seems to be a problem. Though right now nobody has zeroed-in over any location for the shoot and it is still in the discussion stage. But the cast would surely not prefer a location like Kamatipura,” the source adds.
The final meeting to decide on the location of the shoot will be taken after Aamir’s nephew, actor Imran Khan’s wedding proceedings, when Aamir will be relatively free to discuss the matter.
“Aamir and Reema together will have the final word on the matter. If they decide on a real location then, of course, everything right from the security of the actors to the logistics will be sorted out. Knowing Aamir, he will give the go ahead only if he is convinced that all arrangements are efficiently sorted out. Let’s see what his final decision is,” the source adds.
Both Rani and Kareena have played the role of a sex worker with elan. Kapoor played the role of a sex worker in Chameli and Mukherji made a brief appearance in Saawariya.
