Shashank Khaitan was all set to collaborate with Varun Dhawan once again in the much-anticipated ‘Rannbhoomi’. However, the film was put on the backburned indefinitely and Khaitan has revealed why.
“The film demanded world-class special effects and technology. As I started discussing with technicians, we realised that the budget was turning out to be humongous. It’s not easy [to recover costs] if you mount a big-budget movie. For every Baahubali that has done well, there are several other [expensive] movies that have not been successful. This puts a lot of pressure on the producers”, said the filmmaker, as quoted by Mid-Day.
Khaitan also revealed that the decision to stop it in its tracks for now was a mutual one, “With such a large budget, I, as a director, had to be doubly sure that I am equipped to make the film. So, we unanimously decided to wait it out”.
