Mumbai, July 17 :
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is not particularly fond of night shoots, but for the shooting of “Singham Returns” he had to lose sleep over it.
The film’s script demanded that the cast and crew be active at night and if a source is to be believed, “Singham Returns” is one project that Shetty shot the maximum night schedules for.
As the film is about black money and illegal siphoning off of funds, it needed to be symbolised by being shot in the dark of the night.
“Singham Returns” will see Ajay Devgn as Bajirao Singham, a role he first essayed in “Singham”. Produced by Reliance Entertainment, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor.

The movie, also starring Dhanush, marks the Bollywood debut of southern superstar actor Kamal Haasan’s daughter Akshara. Big B and Balki had also worked together in films like “Cheeni Kum” and “Paa” in the past.
The megastar is also busy wrapping up his pending projects.

Pooja Bhatt learnt ‘casting’ lessons from dad
Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt says she goes by advice that her father Mahesh Bhatt once gave her about the process of casting. Since then, she never follows Bollywood’s diktats.
“A lesson I’ve learned from my father with regard to casting & one I apply to each film I make- “we don’t need new people, we need new EYES’. If I had gone by Bollywood dictates, John Abraham would not have been in JISM nor Irrfan in ROG. Rahat dubbed in PAAP & no Sunny in JISM2 (sic),” Pooja tweeted.
“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. I will cast with my heart & back people I believe in for I rather fail on my terms than yours,” she added.
