New Delhi: Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri's upcoming film 'The Vaccine War' has always been in the headlines ever since its announcement.
As the film has created a lot of chatter about the path breaking story that will be a tribute to the endless support and dedication of the medical fraternity and scientists, the filmmaker has also kept the audience's excitement about the film at the edge by bringing the progress of its shooting schedules, and now the film has wrapped up its final schedule.
Veteran names like Nana Patekar, Pallavi Joshi, and Anupam Kher along with new age sensation ‘Kantara’ actress Sapthami Gowda is also a part of the film.
The filmmaker had started his journey of structuring the film by commencing the shoot in Lucknow. With his sheer belief in the story, Agnihotri shot the film around different places and now the film has been wrapped in Hyderabad.
Producer and actor Pallavi Joshi said in a statement, "The Vaccine War is unlike any other film that we have ever done under 'I Am Buddha' productions. Science thriller is a very new genre and it's a very difficult genre but we decided to accept the challenge. I think 100 percent marks should go to Vivek for accepting this challenge of writing and directing this film.”
“All the actors - Nana Patekar, Nivedita Bhattacharya, Sapthami Gowda, Girija Oak, Yagya Turlapathi and myself, we found ourselves in completely alien territory because the scientific terminologies that we had to use in his film were so difficult and something that we had never heard of in life,” said Pallavi.
“So saying them became a challenge for us in the beginning but within a week I think we all found the scientist within us and we were speaking all the scientific terminologies as if we were born speaking them. It was a great sight to see all of us transform into very confident scientists and after the end of the shoot, we were all only discussing science which was a very hilarious thing to happen because until before the film began none of us knew any ABC about science whatsoever,” she further said.
“Our technical team was most under stress because this film was shot very differently, technically it is a very different film. Vivek and our technical crew had set some impossible targets for themselves and I am really waiting, biting my nails every now and then because I want to know what the end result is.
But one thing is for sure that once the audience sees the film and walks out of the theatre they are going to walk out with their head held high,” she shared.
“Accepting new challenges has always been the motto of 'I Am Buddha' productions and I think with The Vaccine War we have just set very new standards for ourselves. Sometimes it's a little scary but it's also extremely satisfying,” she added.
‘The Vaccine War’ is scheduled to release on August 15, in Hindi, English, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, and Bengali. (UNI)
