Rajkummar Rao had to walk into a jungle in Chhattisgarh in searing heat to shoot for ‘Newton’. But he says the focused team and ‘sweet locals’ helped him and the film’s crew get past it.In ‘Newton’, Rajkummar will be seen playing the role of a man who ventures into a Naxal-infested jungle in the black comedy directed by Amit Masurkar. The ‘CityLights’ star shot for a large part of the film in the jungle, and in fact, there was no network issue in the area as well. “It was really hot out there. Temperature was going to almost 40 degrees everyday but luckily the environment on set was such that everyone was just focused on making a good film. The locals there were so sweet.
“They were going extra mile to make us feel comfortable in the scorching heat,” Rajkummar said in a statement. It was during the course of shooting the film last month that Rajkummar lost his mother, who was reportedly unwell for a while and succumbed to a heart attack. Now, the actor has wrapped up the shooting.
