Kangna Ranaut, who is currently shooting in South Africa for Anees Bazmee’s No Problem, will return to Mumbai next week for a major schedule with the unit of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. The actor, who plays the role of Ajay Devgan’s wife in the film, has just shot for one day since the film went on the floors on June 3. Once she is back, she will be shooting several romantic sequences with the actor, including a song that will be shot against real-life location, much like the rest of the film, revealed director Milan Luthria. Talking about her as well as other actors’ look, Luthria said, “It’s taken us months to create a look inspired from the ’70s fashion. We are ensuring that it is closely-guarded.” The unit, which has been shooting at several indoor locations as well as a major outdoor sequence on the ship, has been instructed to park vanity vans as close as possible to the field of shoot, not allow curious on-lookers to click any pictures on their cellphones and even keep the clapper board free from the film’s title to keep curiosity at bay!
Meanwhile, even Prachi Desai, who is very much in the city, has shot just about three to four days of work. This, as the first schedule saw the filmmaker shooting major individual sequences with Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi, whose character is inspired from that of Dawood Ibrahim. The two actors have started shooting with each other only about a week ago, according to Luthria, who added that the film is being shot in a manner that blends realism with flamboyance.
