Rajkummar Rao Set for a ’90s Flashback Before Srikanth Promotions


Acclaimed Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao is on the brink of an exciting 2024 with the impending release of his film Srikanth. However, before the hustle of the biopic’s promos begins, he’s set to board a cinematic time machine back to the ’90s. Rao will be finishing the shooting of his upcoming social comedy, Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video, where he’s been cast opposite the talented Triptii Dimri. Following a demanding schedule in the beautiful state of Uttarakhand, director Raaj Shaandilyaa has laid out plans for a final 10-day shooting escapade in Mumbai which will herald the completion of the film.

The kick-off for this nostalgic ’90s journey began in late January as the cast and crew, including notable talents Mallika Sherawat and Vijay Raaz, gathered in Uttarakhand. Fast-paced filming took place in popular locations such as Rishikesh and Dehradun, capturing the essence of the locality amidst hearty laughter and warm camaraderie. An insider from the project lauded director Shaandilyaa’s swift working ethic, hinting that completing the pending scenes in Mumbai was now on the immediate horizon. With a weekend of rigorous preparation ahead of him, Rao is set to re-immerse himself in his character’s aura.

Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video is not just a trip down memory lane but a whirlwind of chaos encapsulated in film when a small town is rocked by the disappearance of a couple’s intimate videotape. In the wake of this scandal, the storyline follows the couple’s desperate plight to Mumbai hoping for a solution. Filming locales designated within Mumbai’s diverse landscape range from the bustling streets of south Mumbai to the serenity of Madh Island, with critical sequences planned for a Grant Road hospital, and somewhat peculiarly, a cemetery.

Bhushan Kumar, the producer behind this endeavor, could hardly contain his enthusiasm over the smooth progress in Uttarakhand and looks forward to the Mumbai leg of this production journey. As for Rajkummar Rao, the completion of this final stint not only signals the finishing touches of Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video but also paves the way for him to channel his focus onto the Srikanth biopic promotions.

Rao’s ability to juggle different genres and periods is a testament to his acting prowess. This swift transition from shooting a comedy with a ’90s backdrop to promoting a contemporary biopic highlights his versatile capabilities as an actor. The anticipation for both releases is palpable among his fans and the Bollywood audience at large.

The ’90s are often celebrated for their distinctive cultural nuances, from fashion to film-making techniques. This era holds a special nostalgic charm that the upcoming film hopes to capture and present in a light-hearted yet thought-provoking narrative. The social commentary embedded within the comedy is expected to resonate with both audiences who lived through the decade and those who relish retro vibes alike.

As the film industry keenly observes the making of Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video, with its diverse set and intriguing plot, one can’t help but wonder if this cinematic canvas will become a cult classic, fondly reflected upon in years to come. With a wrap in sight on the Mumbai shores, Rajkummar Rao will soon be seen gracing the screens with his impeccable talent, perhaps even igniting a spark of ’90s revivalism in the heart of modern cinema.
