Sara Ali Khan' s Bollywood debut is highly anticipated one. Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter has been working hard for her debut in tinsel town for a while now. She has already started filming for her new film Kedarnath which also features Sushant Singh Rajput and is being directed by Abhishek Kapoor.
The crew recently completed the first schedule of the shoot in Uttrakhand and are currently in Mumbai where a set has been created for the film.
Now, it's no ordinary set as it has cost the makers a whopping Rs 7 crores. A report in DNA states that the set has been created in Filmcity in Mumbai and looks quite authentic.
“They have replicated the entire holy city at a whopping cost. A model of the Kedarnath temple has also been designed," a source has been quoted as saying.
The film is based on the Uttrakhand flash floods that took place a few years ago. Filming of the flood scenes could not be possible at the actual site as the city has recently redeveloped itself, which is why the set had to be reconstructed in Mumbai.
Set in pilgrimage site Kedarnath, the film has Sushant Singh Rajput playing a tour guide.
A few months back the makers had revealed the first look of Sara Ali Khan from the film. The image had instantly gone viral. In fact, both Abhishek Kapoor and his wife Pragya Yadav have been sharing photos of the lead pair from the sets for a while, increasing our curiosity level.
With a lot of hope and excitement we left mumbai for #kedarnath not sure if what we would come back with would do justice to our vision. It was nothing short of an expedition Given the terrain and weather we would face. Having wrapped and on our way back, thanks to a great crew, and supporting producers #kriarjentertainment #arjunkapoor @iprernaarora @pragyadav ..im glad our smiles are still intact #kedarnaththemovie @guyintheskypictures @sushantsinghrajput #saraalikhan #jaibholenath #uttarakhand #pilgrimage #yatra #movie #passion #artists #love #loveisapilgrimage
