Exclusive! Here’s why Sujoy Ghosh ditched Kolkata in favour of Scotland for Amitabh Bachchan – Taapsee Pannu’s Badla

Sujoy Ghosh reveals the real reason why he did not shoot Amitabh Bachchan – Taapsee Pannu’s Badla in his favourite city Kolkata!

Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla had already generated a lot of excitement amongst the fans. Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu were reuniting after Pink, and that too for a murder mystery. The makers dropped the Badla trailer today (February 02) and it recorded a record number of views in just a few minutes. Looks like the audience too can’t wait to catch this thriller. But one thing that caught everyone’s attention is the fact that Sujoy Ghosh has ditched his favourite city, Kolkata. Instead, he chose to shoot the film in the snowy atmosphere of Scotland. Kolkata has featured majorly in most of Sujoy’s works. The city itself has lent a certain character to his films, like it did in the Vidya Balan-starrer Kahaani (2012). So, it was quite surprising to see Sujoy give up Kolkata for Scotland in Badla!

Point this out to the filmmaker and he agrees! “Had the film been shot in Kolkata, we would have had to do away with Mr Bachchan’s sharp-suited, dapper look of an investigator in the film and made him look like Byomkesh Bakshi,” says Sujoy jokingly. He further adds, “not that we would not have loved to see him in that avatar.” On a serious note, explaining his reason, he reveals to us exclusively, “The premise of Badla was such that it needed the leads to be in a certain set-up. The eerie atmosphere of Scotland naturally lends itself to adding layers of mystery to the thriller. There’s a certain melancholic vibe to the snowed in places there which we wanted to tap.”

As the name suggests and the trailer reveals, Badla is a revenge thriller. Taapsee plays a married woman, Naina Sethi, who finds herself accused in her lover’s murder. On the other hand, Amitabh Bachchan plays Badal Gupta who is investigating the case. The film, adapted from 2016’s Spanish revenge thriller Contratiempo (The Invisible Guest), will be exciting to watch. Slated to release on March 8, stay tuned to Cine Blitz for news and gossip about Badla.

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan’s shirtless avatars displaying his ripped muscles in full glory have always been an instant hit. And besides, his acting and dancing abilities, it’s his toned physique that gets most talked about. Well, the actor may look effortlessly hot, but his rigorous work-out sessions clearly show the star’s dedication to staying fit. And Hrithik trains hard for it – certainly not easy – but he believes that if there’s no pain, there’s no gain! Hrithik shared his work-out video via his Instagram handle and it only confirms his dedication as pushes himself to get the fab best body in B-Town! And guess what, we think it could be for Krrish 4.

After posting his workout video yesterday (April 18), he posted another video today (April 19) which is his transformation on Day 2. As we see in the video, Hrithik is giving his best to get the body he wants and his caption reads, “Transformation journey Day 2. Owing to too many injuries over the years, I’ve adopted ZMR’s (zero momentum reps). It helped my rehab along with gaining strength so much so that it’s now become a part of the HRX workout module at Cult.fit 1 rep could equal 1 minute. .n yeah that’s 10 pounds. (Gotto start somewhere right ?). And at the end, you are supposed to say faaaaaa….aaaa! ( a rule is a rule what can I say). PS: this used to be so much easier 20 years ago).” Clearly, he is pushing his limits, but that hasn’t dampened the 45-year-old actor’s sense of humour as he openly took a dig at his own age.

For now, Hrithik Roshan will soon be seen in Super 30 where he is playing the role of mathematician Anand Kumar. Apart from this, there’s another untitled film in which Hrithik and Tiger Shroff are starring together for the first time.

Now to calm down both the superstars and bring about peace, the film’s lead actress – Taapsee Pannu has stepped in and has promised to throw the in-demand celebratory party.

And guess what, her idea seems to have worked too! It was recently that Badla turned to be a hit at the box office and Big B had a lot to say to which Shah Rukh replied that he is waiting for Bachchan to throw a party. Bachchan on the other hand wrote, “oye फ़िल्म में काम हमने kiya , produce आपने किया , promotions में निस्वार्थ योगदान humne diya , अब party भी हम दें !!!??? .. outside Jalsa every night koi nahin aata !!” and well the conversation continued becoming into a to and fro on Twitter. So, when Taapsee was asked about the same, she said, “I’ll try to invite everyone and they can stop arguing about it. That’s why I didn’t interrupt also. I was like, let me come back and I will throw a party.”

 

Talking about it further, she adds, “I have been shooting in Johri village in Meerut area since Badla released. Nobody has come here with a cake for me, so I have no idea what celebrations are going on and who is giving a party to whom.”

Taapsee and Amitabh were last seen together in Badla which was produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies. The film was applauded by the critics as well as the audience and turned out to be a hit.
