Director Director Sanjay Gupta certainly didn’t leave any stone unturned to re-create the milieu of 1970s Mumbai as he has spent well over two crores only on one sequence of his next Shootout At Wadala with the lead cast John Abraham and Tusshar Kapoor.
The sequence needed a BEST bus from the era, which don’t ply anymore and not a single model was at the unit’s disposal.
“The sequence would have cost us under a crore but we had to get a vintage bus which was not available and even when we managed to get one, it wasn’t allowed to enter Mumbai city (due to a law which bans buses older than 20 years from entering the city). Because of that we had to shoot the sequence outside the city, which tripled our budget and we ended up spending more than Rs. 2.6 crore,” says Gupta.
