Filmmaker Aanand L. Rai did a recce of Meerut for his next film starring Shah Rukh Khan. And then he recreated the city in Mumbai’s Filmcity itself. A leading tabloid also says that they’ve even recreated the Clock Tower aka Ghanta Ghar of Meerut.
SRK will be portraying the role of a dwarf in the film. A source says, “Since Shah Rukh is playing a dwarf, some VFX technicalities are involved, which will be difficult to execute to outdoors in the midst of crowds. So Aanand thought of shooting on a set in a controlled location to facilitate the process. The film is expected to roll by the end of this month.”
