As to the quote of Mid Day, “The unit has planned a week-long schedule across Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The film’s cast, comprising Indian and Hollywood actors, has been called upon to allot their dates. With Hemsworth expected in the city by October 20, the ensemble cast has been asked to dedicate the last two weeks of October to the project.”

It was added by the source, “The team will shoot at the places they had covered the first time around, including Dharavi and Byculla in the city, and a few pockets of Ahmedabad. They may also have a brief two-day stint in Indonesia. If all goes as planned, it will be a wrap before October 30.”


Last year, Chris Hemsworth came to India to also film Dhaka. The shooting site was in Mumbai and Ahmedabad.

In a talk with IANS this year, the Avengers: Endgame star got candid on filming in India, sharing that he felt just like a rockstar when doing so. He said,

“I love the place and the people. Shooting there... There were thousands of people on the streets every day and I have never experienced that on set. It was sort of intimidating as it was exciting because there were so many people.”


Hemsworth added, “After every take (when the director) called ‘cut’, there was loud cheer. We felt like rock stars in a stadium. But the warmth and support we got while shooting there, no matter how disruptive we were to their daily lives, it was so good. People were so positive. I have huge appreciation to that.” For those who don’t know, he has a daughter whose name is India.

Directed by filmmaker Sam Hargrave, Dhaka is a kidnap drama produced by Russo Brothers. The film also features Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi and Manoj Bajpayee.
