Aanand L Rai who understands the heart of small town stories ,ventured into producing films with Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Nil Battey Sannata.
Rai enjoys giving directors who will be making films under his banner complete leeway and meeting all their requirements as he understands their perspective as a filmmaker. The director-producer also likes to be involved in these projects and be a support system to his directors.
Quite recently Aanand L Rai took off to Rajasthan with director Navdeep Singh to scout for locations for their film together.
Since the film will be based in the 18th century and depict the era during which the Battle of Buxar was fought, it will be shot in parts of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh .
Says a source, “The location needs to depict the era during which the Battle of Buxar was fought between the British East India Company, and the combined forces of the Nawabs of Bengal and Awadh and the Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II. Areas in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh will best suit the scale and landscape that Navdeep is looking at and he along with Aanand L Rai traveled to Rajasthan recently to lock on a few locations.
