Lootera is Balaji’s and Phantom’s first co production. Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane (of Udaan fame), the film was to start its schedule in Dalhousie when it started snowing...
Lootera unit was to start shoot on Saturday at Dalhousie when it started snowing heavily. The first set was destroyed. The crew tried very hard to save it, but the snow was very intense and thus the damage was done. Now the set will have to be built again and that too by non-stop work so as to reduce the loss of working days, which have been wasted.
Vikramaditya Motwane, Mahendra Shetty (DOP) , Aditya Kanwar (Art Director) were out to the set constructed in Gawar 3 kms from Dalhousie. It has been snowing very hard making the roads very slippery. Aditya was worried about the entire set construction team being stranded there and hence decided to stay back. The location is secluded and prone to snow storms. In case of a snow storm they have no heaters, water or food supply.
Lootera is a classic love story, set in the 1950s and is set to release on Oct 26 2012, which is Bakri Eid date.
