'Vikram Vedha:' Reliance Entertainment refutes reports of Hrithik Roshan refusing to shoot in UP

Reliance Entertainment said that 'Vikram Vedha' was shot in UAE due to health and protocol concerns and any attempts to twist these set of facts are clearly mischievous and unthruthful

'Vikram Vedha,' starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan, is one of the highly anticipated movies of this year. After facing many hurdles, the shoot for the Pushkar-Gayatri directorial wrapped up earlier last month. The film has often made headlines and recently a report stated that Hrithik Roshan refused to shoot in Uttar Pradesh.

According to BollywoodLife.com, Pushkar and Gayathri were keen to shoot the film in some old lanes of UP to maintain the gritty looks and feel, but the actor refused. He reportedly urged the directors and writer to recreate the lanes of Uttar Pradesh via lavish sets in Dubai due to which the budget for the movie doubled.

Now, Reliance Entertainment has issued a statement claiming that these reports are 'misleading' and there has been 'totally unsubstantiated reporting' on 'Vikram Vedha' shooting locations. In its statement, the company clarified that the film has been shot extensively in India, including Lucknow. However, a portion of the film was shot in the United Arab Emirates in October-November 2021 since it was the only location to provide infrastructure for bio-bubble to accommodate the crew and allow the building of sets in a studio during the preceding months of the shoot.

'We chose to do that out of health and protocol concerns. Any attempts to twist these set of facts are clearly mischievous and untruthful. Also, we would like to emphatically state that at Reliance Entertainment while we welcome suggestions from creative talents, the production and budgetary decisions are centralized prerogative,' Reliance Entertainment said in its statement.

'Vikram Vedha' is the Hindi remake of the 2017 Tamil action thriller of the same name. It will release in theatres on September 30.
