It’s not okay to shoot a film in Patna, even if the film’s protagonist hails from Bihar. The makers of the bio-pic on the Bihari mathematician Anand Kumar have decided to not shoot their film in Patna. Instead, Varanasi which has topography quite similar to Patna, will stand in as Patna in the Anand Kumar bio-pic Super 30 featuring Hrithik Roshan,
Revealing this detail, a source very close to the project says, “Director Vikas Bahl was very keen to shoot the bio-pic in Patna. So was Anand Kumar who had opened the doors of his home for the crew.”
But practical problems precluded Patna from the plot. “The security provided for Hrithik Roshan in Patna was just not adequate. So the unit has decided to quietly slip into Varanasi which incidentally has become a popular location for Bollywood. They needed to shoot on the Ganga ghats of Bihar. Now the ghats of Varanasi will pass off as Patna.”
