Hattrick hero Shivaraj Kumar starrer Bhajarangi, which is slated to hit the screen in November is in its final schedule. The crew, which is busy shooting songs, is facing the major obstacle from the rain.
Last month, the crew was busy shooting the song, featuring Shivaraj Kumar and female lead Aindrita Ray, in the city. It was reported by Bangalore Mirror (BM) that the sets of the Bhajarangi was washed out by rain then.
Even in Rajasthan, the rain did not spare Bhajarangi team as it disrupted the shooting of the song because of which the location was changed within a day. It was said that the crew had fixed the schedule to shoot a song in the desert.
Talking to BM, director A Harsha, who also choreographed the song, said, "The coordinator said it was beyond human control. Unseasonal rain in the desert made it impossible to shoot. There would have been too many footmarks if we shot there. We lost a day. Another location at Rann, which is a dry expanse of land, had also become slushy."
The crew was canning the song, featuring the leads, when the incident occurred. Luckily, they found an alternative and wrapped the shoot.

Junargh Fort And Lalgarh Palace
Harsha said, "We found another expanse of desert where it had not rained. To add value, there was a man-made oasis which added contrast. The Junagarh Fort and the Lalgarh Palace were used as two other backdrops."
Not Exactly A Duet Song
"We had conceptualised the song keeping in mind that it was part of the fantasy portion of the film," Harsha added.
Effect Of Change In Location
It is said that the change in location due to rain, has cost the filmmakers a six lakh rupees more.
Exceeded The Normal Budget
Production unit said, "We had expected to complete the song shoot in Rs 20-22 lakh, but it reached Rs 28 lakh because of this."
The crew has confirmed that the movie is complete, expect the introduction song, which is scheduled to shoot in Bangalore from October 16.
