Following in Tom’s footsteps
Vipul Shah’s next, Force 2 which is the second instalment of Force (2011) starring John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha, is currently being shot in Budapest, Hungary.
Interestingly, the shoot is taking place at the Ethnographic Museum, where Hollywood actor Tom Hanks shot for his upcoming film, Inferno, earlier this year.
An insider says, “The location’s green room that is being used by John, was used by Tom Hanks during the shoot of his film earlier this year. Tom also shot extensively at the Ethnographic Museum, where an important sequence of director Abhinay Deo’s movie is being filmed.”
Budapest has been a popular shooting location for Hollywood films; movies like Die Hard (1988) and Transporter 3 (2008), among others, have been shot there. But it is still a largely unexplored location for Bollywood. “Being a hard-core action film, Budapest was an appropriate location for the movie. It is scenic. The makers are hoping that the place’s true beauty translates well on to the big screen,” adds the insider.
