For the unversed, Durgavati is a horror-thriller. It is an official remake of superhit Telugu film Bhaagamathie (2018) which starred Anushka Shetty in the lead role. Filmmaker G.

A source close to the development informs an entertainment portal that Mahie agreed to come onboard earlier this month and has begun preparing for her role in the film. She has had several meetings with director G. Ashok to discuss the look of her character.

Durgavati is scheduled to hit the shooting floors on January 23 in Madhya Pradesh. The team will be shooting at various real locations, including heritage buildings like Moti Mahal, Sadar Manzil and a nearby municipal school, Oriental Institute of Science & Technology, Bhopal’s Old Central Jail, Minto Hall and Poha Bhata village. Mahie Gill will start shooting for her portion a few days after Bhumi begins hers.
