Why is Goa still a favorite shooting location for Rohit Shetty?
The last session at the IFFI Goa ended with an explosion with the successful director Rohit Shetty. He is known for shooting almost all of his recent films in Goa, in various places. “I have filmed 12 movies here. 14 years ago, I filmed my first Golmaal here. People are very positive here, the landscape is very beautiful. I have shot across the state, from north to south. More than anything, people are so relaxed here. Rohit said.
Speaking of his biggest franchise, Golmaal, many of which are filmed in Goa, he says: “I was doing a thriller with Ajay Devgn and Neeraj Vora came to me. He said I have a play, would you like to listen to it and make a movie about it? I went to Ajay and said: I don't want to do the thriller now, but I want to do this (play in a movie). Ajay said: You are an action director, I am an action actor, you want to make a comedy. But he agreed. That time it was a matter of survival for me. Zameen, my first movie, didn't do well. ”
Just doing comedies, how did you move into the police universe? I was doing comedies and everyone was doing well. Then I thought: Am I taking the easy way? I told Ajay about that, Ajay said: If you ever have an action script, bring it to me. That's how Singham started.
