I’m from Vadodara, & Shooting of Secret Superstar movie was done here, that place is hardly 2min. (50 meter) away from my house. In May 2016, entire crew came in this society, name “Haji Park” which changed to “Modern Colony” for movie, & shot there for 3 days. & more 2-3- places in Vadodara of total 8-10 days schedule.
They paid 5,00,000 rs. to house owner for 3 days of shooting & 2,00,000 rs. to secretory of society for maintenance. They change color & set-up of house as per their requirement. I heard that time that Aamir Khan will come to Vadodara airport on 25th may 2016 for small scene, don’t know he came or not.
That time I only know about this movie - that , this movie is directed by Aamir’s manager, Kiran Rao is Assistant director of this movie (actually producer) & some actress from movie Dangal also in main lead in this movie (I thought she was Fatima shaikh ). I tried to see shooting but because of security no outsiders were allowed to enter in the society. I only seen some crew members & their buses & vans after their pack-up around 8 PM.
I don’t know why they chose this society as they can easily find some society in Mumbai or can use filmcity for 3 days shoot, but that time I heard that they want some Muslim society, that’s why they choose this.
In trailer, scenes @1:20, 2:03-2:07, 2:19 & other scene of her house was shot in this society.
