‘Bang Bang’ incurs loss due to Hrithik Roshan’s ill-health
Hrithik Roshan was suppose to shoot a song for the movie, ‘Bang Bang’ starring Katrina Kaif as the female lead but due to the actor’s ill-health, the shooting of the song was postponed. The makers had to incur heavy loss due to the cancellation of the shoot as the set was built up and huge amount was spend to structure it. Hrithik Roshan headed to the US for treatment.
Hrithik failed to shoot due to his sickness. The nine day shooting schedule was suppose to kick-start from November 27th but now it is pushed to January.
Says a source, “A massive set was under construction at Film City in Goregaon for the song picturisation. It had an European feel to it. The construction was almost complete. Such a set usually costs more than a crore. The expenditure had been incurred besides the unit hands who were booked for the shoot had to be paid their remuneration.”
A source close to the studio however states, “The insurance company takes care of the losses so the studio doesn’t lose money with the constant postponement or cancellation of shoots.”
Another source informs, “The production house might not have incurred losses directly, but still the payment for the location of the set from the day it has been blocked to the last day of the shoot has to be made. So they still have to incur some loss for the cancellation of the shoot.”‘Bang Bang’ directed by Siddhath Raj Anand is Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif’s second film together after ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. The film is a Hindi remake of Hollywood blockbuster, ‘Knight and Day’ starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Vishal Shekhar will compose the music of the film.
