For his upcoming Baadshaho, Milan Luthria went all in to make sure everything was perfect. In fact, he even did look tests for truck.
The esteemed director was shown as many as 20 heavy duty vehicles to choose from to fit his requirement of an armoured truck. He was very clear with his specifications for the truck, the shape had to be aspirational for children and at the same time rugged, like in war movies. After many garage and vehicle supplier visits, the popular Shaktiman truck was zeroed in on.
Production designer Shashank Tere got into designing the details immediately whereas the German action-director Ramazan Bulut got into the technical aspects as to how it would be modified with regards to the action sequences keeping in mind the safety of the actors. Another important feature of the truck is the lock and the heavy metal door at the back.
The truck had to be painted four times before it got approval from Milan. He wasnted the shade of green to be coordinating with the hue of the film, which is rustic and raw.
Right up until the end of the first schedule, there was a lot of back and forth as the modifications had to be perfect and do justice to the character its playing in the film.
Baadshaho, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Milan Luthria releases on September 1.
