Jaipur: The state's forts and palaces are all set for the shooting of two big Hollywood films, starting April. If Tom Cruise is arriving for the shooting of his film Mission Impossible 4, Mexican beauty Salma Hayek will be coming for the shooting of The Driver, reports Times of India.
Though everything related to the shootings is kept under the wraps, reliable sources close to the shooting arrangements of the films told TOI on Sunday that Salma Hayek along with Bollywood's bad man Gulshan Grover will visit Bikaner in the second week of May to shoot at Gajener Palace.
"Initially, Salma Hayek was quite upset with Gulshan Grover that he had disclosed the fact that he would be shooting with her in Bikaner. Grover was even called to New York. But now everything is sorted out and they will start the shooting in the first week of May," said a leading shooting arranger of the state who is facilitating the film unit with every logistic support.
Asked how big would be the schedule, he said that it would be a fortnight long affair in which important sequences between Salma Hayek and Gulshan Grover would be shot. Gulshan Grover is playing the husband of Salma Hayek in the film. The film is been directed by Bill Duke.
Asked whether Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible 4 will have a head start in Rajasthan, sources said that most probably the unit will land in the state in the first week of April. "They don't want to shoot in blistering heat conditions in May and June though presently they have asked for first week of May. Final dates are to be worked out," a reliable source added.
Earlier, the film was planned to be shot during December but problems relating to the dates of the actors including Tom Cruise and Anil Kapoor delayed it.
