To make Ranveer Singh’s ‘Circus’ better, Rohit Shetty hired 150 trained gymnasts and acrobats. A source close to the film said, “The world of a big circus company has been created. This time the comedy has been kept serious and not loud comedy and joker pane. The lives of those working in the circus company have been used as metaphors. He is used as a metaphor throughout the film of how life juggles with gymnasts and acrobats working in a circus company. Like a common man also keeps doing feats all his life. Where he gets stuck, comedy continues to happen. Along with the main lead characters in the film, this metaphor is also present throughout the film as a sub-plot.
The film will see circus acrobatics of the 90s
A source on the sets said, “With the character of Ranveer Singh, Rohit Shetty has tried to bring back the almost extinct circus culture to the public. Ranveer will be seen in the role of a circus operator in the film. The brave acrobatics and magical games that used to be in the companies of circuses in the 90s are all in this film. This has helped in making the film visually beautiful. Rohit has shot for 15 days with those trend 150 gymnasts and acrobats. The entire film was shot for 90 days. Thus, a major part of the shoot has been given to the circus aspect. Those parts have been shot considering them as performing art.
Ranveer used to do rehearsals and reading sessions on the sets
Sources also gave important information about Ranveer’s attitude and said, ‘Ranveer has become a big star, but even today he surrenders himself in front of the director’s conviction. They did not demand changes in the script during the shoot. The shooting of the film is mostly done at night. Due to this, the actors used to have a lot of difficulty in commuting to the location. Even the phones of those who knew did not come during that time. Additional help was also received in following the Kovid protocols. Also Ranveer used to get two more hours. In that, he used to rehearse daily with the rest of the actors on the set. In this way, he used to get a chance to prepare the character at the time of the shoot itself. Because of this they did not have to do separate reading sessions etc. The rehearsals on the set were done in plain clothes. Then everyone used to come in costume according to the getup of their characters.
