Shooting in India was nice adventure: Christian Bale
A key sequence in the third film in the Batman series was shot in Mehrangarh, Jodhpur and Bale says the local people thought the film's unit had lost their mind.
"The locals thought we were nuts. We were out in 120-degree heat. I thought it was a great induction by fire into the whole thing. It was nice to mix it up and go to different places. It makes it an adventure," Bale said.
The film, which sees Bale reprise the role of Batman, touched down in a remote expanse near Jodhpur and the forbidding landscape added to the desolation needed for a prison scene.
"We wanted a sequence that needed to be in the middle of nowhere, and the place where we shot is beautiful and clearly very remote. We actually went there with a very small crew, and it was an exciting way to start the movie," said Emma Thomas, the film's producer.
The last of the blockbuster Dark Knight Trilogy stars Bale, Tom Hardy and will see Anne Hathaway essay the role of Catwoman.
Other cast members include Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman.
The Warner Bros. Pictures film releases worldwide on July 20. It is being released in India by DAR Media Pvt. Ltd.
In the recent past, India has been a location for various international projects. Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow has filmed a part of her film 'Zero Dark 30' in Chandigarh while Bipasha Basu's Hollywood debut 'Singularity' has been shot in Madhya Pradesh's Orchha region.
