Climax in Chechnya

Climax in Chechnya

Fast-paced : From Aazaan.

Produced by Alchemia Films, the movie is directed by Prashant Chadha of Aap Ka Suroor fame and sees Sachin Joshi playing an informant who has to go undercover beyond enemy lines to save the country from the threat of biological warfare.

After shooting all over the world right from Morocco, Sudan, Algeria, Poland, France, Germany and India, the film’s climax is going to be shot in Chechnya, Russia — an area with catastrophic radiation levels. Says a source, “No film has ever been shot in Chechnya before — Aazaan would be the first.

After almost nine years of war, Chechnya has become an ecological disaster zone with oil and chemical leaking into the ground and radioactive material lying about. The makers thought it was apt to shoot the climax there since Aazaan is about biological warfare — the cast and crew will be shooting there for five days.”

Says director Prashant Chadha, “This is a very demanding film both for the cast and the crew. We have shot in subzero temperatures in Poland, France and Germany and the difficult terrains of Morocco, Sudan and Algeria.”

The big budget action flick is also being shot with a foreign crew (including cinematographer Axel Fischer) and stars ‘Playboy’ cover girl and Guess model Candice Boucher.
