A massive set from Ajay Devgn’s film ‘Maidaan’ has been dismantled to avoid the rising maintenance costs due to the monsoons season.
“We built a massive outdoor set covering a 16-acre plot around Mumbai, with all the production infrastructure. Just as the shoot was getting underway, the pandemic hit the world,” Boney Kapoor, producer of ‘Maidaan’, told IANS. “The set has now been dismantled as rains are due to arrive in Mumbai. The rebuild will take at least two months, which will start in September at the earliest, so shooting can commence only in November.”
Taking down the set involved a significant loss for Kapoor, “Thankfully all the indoor and some outdoor, training portions were shot in Lucknow and Kolkata, so are already in the can.”
