Heres why the war drama Bhuj went way over expected budget

Ajay Devgan's 'Bhuj' is all set for a digital premier on Disney+ Hotstar on 13th of August. The trailer of the film did not only evoke the sense of patriotism and admiration for our armed forces but it also showed some visual effects spectacles which are ground breaking for Indian Cinema. Makers were so passionate about the grand scale of events portrayed in the film that the budget of production kept rising around 50 lakh rupees per day.

A source close to the development shared, "Apart from the visual effects employed to showcase the battle scenes, the makers made use of fighter jets and massive tank with more than 600 junior artists used to show the army of 2000 odd people. It is pertinent to note that the budget to create all this exceeded Rs 50 lakh Rupees every single day."

The source further added, "There is an action-packed scene in the film where Ajay Devgn’s character finds out that weapons and ammunition are being brought into the country in the gunny bags containing red chillies. This scene has been shot using 100 kilograms Of red chillies strewn across the floor with Devgn fighting with terrorists rolling over it. Naturally, the sting of the chillies was difficult to manage and yet Ajay braved all this and kept delivering his best without complaining at all."
