Rajkummar Rao Flies To Thailand To Shoot Bose Biopics’ Japan Portions

Cinema,in case we’ve forgotten, is  all about the suspension of  disbelief. Not too long ago Sanjay Leela Bhansali took the plot of Hum…Dil Chuke Sanam  to Prague and turned it into Italy.

Now it’s history’s turn to  get a makeover.

The webseries on Subhas Chandra Bose presented by Hansal Mehta has moved to Thailand to shoot the portions showing Bose’s exile in Japan.

A source  close to the development reveals, “Shooting in Japan was not practical  or feasible. The Thai territory lent  itself well to creating an illusion of the Japanese landscape.”

Incidentally Ekta Kapoor and Hansal Mehta are leaving no stones unturned to ensure their Bose bio-pic turns out watchable. After the dismal boxoffice performance  of Tigmashu Dhulia’s Raag Desh which was  also about Subhas Chandra Bose, Hansal Mehta can’t afford to fail.

Mehta’s  Bose is played by the very versatile Rajkummar Rao who left for Thailand immediately after the release of his  new rom-com Bareilly Ki Barfi. Coming up soon is Kabir Khan’s webseries on  Subhas Chandra Bose entitled The Forgotten Army which may star Saif Ali  khan as Bose.

Years ago  the very accomplished Sachin Khedkar had played Subhas Chandra Bose in Shyam Benegal’s film. Unfortunately not many saw Khedkar’s class act.
