As the real region of Kedarnath didn’t allow the makers to shoot because of the bad working conditions, Kapoor built the replica of the region in film city in Mumbai.
Confirming the news, a source informed the leading daily, "They have replicated the entire holy city at a whopping cost. A model of the Kedarnath temple has also been designed. Since the film is an inter-faith love story, set against the backdrop of the devastating Uttarakhand floods, the makers plan to shoot the flood sequences now. Hence, this will be the city that will go under the water. Huge water tankers, too, are going to be made available for the shoot.”
Talking about the improper working conditions and problems while filming in Uttarakhand region, the source further added, "They shot the major portions in Kedarnath during the first schedule, but they cannot shoot the flood scenes there. It has to be done in a controlled environment. So, they decided to put in money to recreate Kedarnath in Mumbai itself.”
Slated to release in December next year, this Sushant Singh and Sara Ali’s film might clash with SRK’s dwarf film and Ranveer Singh’s South remake, ‘Temper’.
