Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is one of the most anticipated films of 2023. The film marks the return of Karan Johar as a director after seven years. It also reunites Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt after their blockbuster Gully Boy. The film boasts of a stellar star cast, including Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi.
Recently, a report claimed that Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is Karan Johar's most expensive film till date, with a whopping budget of Rs 265 crore. The report also stated that the film will be shot in various locations across India and abroad, and will have lavish sets and costumes.
However, a source close to the film has rubbished the rumours and clarified that the budget of the film is nowhere close to the reported figure. The source told Zoom that the film is a family drama with a love story at its core, and not a magnum opus that requires such a huge budget. The source also added that the film will be shot mostly in Mumbai and Delhi, with some portions in London.
The source further said that Karan Johar is known for making films within a reasonable budget and recovering the costs through various avenues. The source said that Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is no different and will be made on a moderate budget that will ensure profitability for all the stakeholders.
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is written by Ishita Moitra, Shashank Khaitan and Sumit Roy. The film is all set to release in theatres on 28th July, 2023.
