We hear that director Tigmanshu Dhulia loves shooting at historical places, but has never been able to make such a place a part of his story. But with 'Bullett Raja', he worked around a sequence with symbolic references to the freedom struggle in India. It is said that for this action drama, Dhulia has shot in various parts of Uttar Pradesh and Kolkata.
A major sequence of the film has been shot at Kakori. For the records, Kakori is the same place the major robbery in the Indian History occurred which was led by late Chandrashekhar Azad against the British Rule.
It is said that the filmmaker always wanted to shoot at Kakori and he made the most of it with 'Bullett Raja', as the subject suits it! What we hear is that the action sequence in Kakori which went on for 3 days was one of the most difficult and challenging sequences of the film.
A source close to the team said, "Kakori train by pass is a beautiful location to shoot as it is not densely populated. We did extensive recce to make a note of the train arriving pattern. The crew used to be informed 15 minutes in advance, to avoid any kind of damage or causality. The safety measures taken to shoot this part were abundant to avoid any kind of mishaps. This place is not much known in the film industry."
Stated an elated Dhulia, "Bullett Raja got itself associated with history by shooting at Kakori crossing. I have always been a student of history and really enjoy shooting at places with great historical value."
Well, with that we can say Tigmanshu Dhulia takes his film down in history, doesn't he?
