Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan unit to move to Film City

MUMBAI: Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan will soon shift to Film City to shoot the last schedule for the film. The schedule for almost 30 days will involve some crucial scenes of the film, which could not be shot in San Francisco.

Talking about the film, a production aide of the film disclosed, “A huge set has been put up at Sunil Maidan of Film City. An underground tank has been constructed to shoot a few scenes that project the hero of the film, Shah Rukh as a savior.”

Johar has shot My Name is Khan in several places. After a month long schedule in Los Angeles starting in December, 2008, the team took a break for SRK’s shoulder operation. Johar then shot portions of the film across two studios in Mumbai, Filmistan and Mehboob in the spring of 2009. Thereafter the unit left for San Francisco in June for a month long schedule. Johar resumed shooting for the film then in Mumbai mid August. After completing a fortnight’s shooting at Filmistan Studios, Johar will embark on his last schedule at Film City from 1 September. This phase of shoot will be for a month.

By the end of the shooting for My Name is Khan, Johar would have shot for at least 130 days. Given that the average shooting days required to complete a film is 60 days, 130 days is twice the amount. But Johar is known for the lavishness of his production which reflects in every frame of the film. So one can only expect the very best from My Name is Khan, given the banner Dharma Productions, the director Karan Johar and the cast, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
