Ajay, Abhishek to shoot ‘Bol Bachchan’ in Jaipur
Rohit Shetty moves away from his favourite destination – Goa – for his next film
Most of Rohit Shetty’s films have been shot at his most preferred destination in India – Goa. And with the Golmaal series and now Singham becoming huge successes at the box office, it seems to have been a lucky location for the director. It was rumoured that Rohit’s next Bol Bachchan, ‘inspired’ from Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Golmaal, too will be shot in Goa. However, we have confirmed reports that it is not true. Rohit has told insiders that he wants to step out of his comfort zone with this Ajay Devgn-Abhishek Bachchan starrer. (Really? Isn’t he making a comedy again and isn’t Ajay once again playing the leading man? How is that ‘different’?) Our source revealed, “Bol Bachchan will be shot in Jaipur and not Goa. Rohit is busy visiting various locations in the Pink City. He wants an interesting palace to film.” Well, if giving up the comforts of lazy Goa for the hustle bustle of the Pink City is challenging, then so be it. We are not the only ones with mixed feelings. “Rohit is happy as well as sad that he won’t be shooting in Goa,” says the source. Rohit, with the big bucks your films have made, a quick getaway to the land of sun-and-surf toh banta hai, boss!
