Producers work very hard to get a project together and that’s exactly what Jio Studios and Maddock Films have done with their joint venture Bala. The film, which was announced last year, is being helmed by their Stree director Amar Kaushik. It went on the floors this week and, from what we hear, it will be shot in Mumbai first and then have a schedule in Kanpur.
Apparently, filming will wrap in two months and even though the makers have got everything down to pat, from production to the dates of the cast, they will have to wait till 2020 to get a release. The reason is that almost every Friday of 2019 is already booked, not just by one but by multiple films. Along with this, Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films has movies like Arjun Patiala and Made In China lined up for this year, along with a few more films in production like the yet-untitled Imtiaz Ali directorial with Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan, and Irrfan Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Angrezi Medium. Well, it seems, even if you complete a film in record time, its release will always depend on the availability of a Friday.
