Star director's new formula to save history!

This director happens to be most famous Bollywood technician Ashutosh Gowarikar who is presently handling Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone for the movie titled ‘Khelen Hum Jee Jaan Se.’ Here is the new formula which Ashutosh gave to all the producers and directors.

His new movie is based on Chittagong Uprising during our Indian Independence which demanded a situation where they required a historical monument that can be used as a British cantonment. After an initial survey, Ashutosh and his wife Sunita Gowarikar found Sawantwadi Palace in Goa as right choice for their situation.

But, this monument which dates back to 18th century was totally in a dilapidated state and required major renovation. Ashutosh who never likes to tamper the history has took the permission from Goa Government to spend Rs. 50 Lakhs on getting back the palace in shape.

Later, this beautiful historical monument was served for their shooting and it is restored after renovation. Yes, Bollywood calls it as a new formula to use historical monuments for shootings and restore them from having natural deaths with time. Hmm…that’s really an interesting lesson.
