In July, Mandiraa Entertainment and Vivek Anand Oberoi’s Oberoi Mega Entertainment announced their second collaboration titled Rosie: The Saffron Chapter. The horror-thriller is based on the real-life story of the sudden disappearance of woman named Rosie from Gurugram, who was an employee at a BPO company. After hosting a nation-wide hunt to zero down on a new talent who would play the titular character, the makers roped in newbie Palak Tiwari.
The film, which also stars Vivek Oberoi, went on floors on the 18th of December. The first schedule of the film is currently taking place in Pune. The first day of shoot involved a night sequence with Tiwari giving the mahurat shot. Following the Pune schedule, the team will be starting their second schedule in Mumbai.
Shooting amidst the new normal is no cakewalk but the cast and the crew of Rosie: The Saffron Chapter is adhering to strict COVID-19 guidelines. The sets are being sanitised at regular intervals and the crew has been requested to wear masks, gloves, face shields and PPE kits at all times. As per a mandate by the production houses, everyone entering the film set has to undergo a Swab test to rule out any possibility of a health hazard.
Talking about kick-starting the shoot, producer, Vivek Anand Oberoi, says, “It was a very special moment for me and a special film to me. I knew that I had to be present on the first day of the shoot of Rosie: The Saffron Chapter. Being a producer is teaching me a lot. It is new for me but I am enjoying every bit of it and really looking forward. Besides, I was waiting to get back to a film set. We are sticking to all the precautionary measures to keep all health risks at bay. I am hopeful that we will achieve what we have set out to.”
K Sera Sera Group is delighted to be a part of Rosie: The Saffron Chapter. It was an overwhelming experience to finally kickstart a project in this ongoing pandemic. I am truly humbled and honoured to be working with the most remarkably talented Vivek Anand Oberoi and Prerna V Arora along with Mandiraa Entertainment. This is a true story that is so exceptional and gripping that I cannot wait for what we believe is going to be an incredible journey ahead,” says Karishma Rattanshi.
Excited to begin the shoot, director, Vishal Mishra, shares, “It is an assurance when you have established names like Vivek Anand Oberoi and Prerna V Arora backing you. It has only been a day but Palak has already left us impressed. She is the heart and soul of our film and she is extremely hard working and sincere. We will be shooting in Pune for a while and will then continue with the second schedule in Mumbai. It is said that working with talented people brings out the best from you and this film is a shining example of that.”
