Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has announced his first international project titled NUCLEAR, which will be made at a whopping budget of Rs 340 crore.
The 54-year-old director took to Twitter to share the news and details about his maiden international film.
“Yes it’s going to be much more costlier than the most expensive film ever made in India and the reason for that is because the subject matter truly demands that it is filmed on a scale never before seen,” Varma said in note shared on the film’s website.
The film deals with a subject of terrorism and will explore the consequences the world will face if nuclear bomb gets into the wrong hands. “...The echoes of the nuclear bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still reverberating in the world’s ears 70 years after they exploded making it impossible for the world to forget the terror they unleashed. The only thing which can be more terrifying than that is, if that explosion happens now in our times...It’s obvious that an actual nuclear explosion in a big city like Mumbai can easily trigger WORLD WAR III and thus end the WORLD,” he added.
The project will be shot in the USA, China, Russia and India and will have a cast of American, Chinese, Russian, British, Yemenis and Indian actors.
