Bollywood Stars to Light Up Kashmir: Welcome to the Jungle Moves to the Valley

Bollywood is all set to witness an extraordinary spectacle as the cast and crew of the much-anticipated film, “Welcome to the Jungle,” prepare for their next adventure. After successful shoots in various locations in Mumbai, the grand entourage of the film, featuring stalwarts like Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Raveena Tandon, Jackie Shroff, and Lara Dutta, will set their sights on the picturesque and rugged terrains of Kashmir.

Sources close to the project have revealed that the principal cast of 34 actors will head to the serene and scenic Valley next month for an intensive and action-packed four-week schedule. The director of the film, Ahmed Khan, is wasting no time and is already gearing up for this penultimate leg of shooting.

According to insiders, the team will first wrap up a few days of shooting in Mumbai before moving to Kashmir in mid-July. “Action set-pieces have been specially designed against the backdrops of glaciers and forests of Kashmir,” a source said. “There are dense deciduous and coniferous forests between the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal ranges. Ahmed has roped in different action directors to choreograph distinct sequences in each setting. Aerial action sequences will also be shot against the glaciers in Pahalgam, Gulmarg, and Sonmarg.”

The ambitious project does not stop there. Once the Kashmir schedule is concluded in the third week of August, the team will head to an international destination for the final phase of shooting. “The destination will most likely be the UK or the UAE,” said the source. “A couple of songs with the entire cast will be filmed in the chosen location in September.” This multi-location shoot is part of the grand vision that producer Firoz A Nadiadwallah has for the film, which is slated for a Christmas 2024 release.

“Welcome to the Jungle” promises a visual feast, with Ahmed Khan ensuring that every frame captures the exotic and ethereal beauty of Kashmir. The logistical challenge of coordinating such a large ensemble cast in diverse terrains does not seem to faze the experienced director, who appears enthusiastic about the unique opportunities each location offers.

Preparations for the shoot in Kashmir are already underway, with local authorities and logistical teams working in tandem to ensure smooth operations.
