Directors Pushkar and Gayatri are working on the Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha starring Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan. Recently, there were rumors doing the rounds that Hrithik refused to shoot in Uttar Pradesh because of which there was an increase in the budget.
Taking to social media, Reliance Entertainment shared a clarificiation, which read, "We have been noticing a lot of misleading and totally unsubstantiated reporting on Vikram Vedha shooting locations. We clearly want to clearly state that Vikram Vedha has been shot extensively in India, including Lucknow. A portion of the film was shot in the United Arab Emirates in October-November of 2021 since it was the only location providing the infrastructure for a bio-bubble that accommodated a crew of such scale, also allowing 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 attempt to twist this set of facts is clearly mischievous and untruthful. Also, we would like to emphatically state that at Reliance Entertainment while we welcome suggestions from creative talent, the production and budgetary decisions are a centralized prerogative."
