Synopsis: Thirumalai Nayakkar Mahal where “Kannalane” was shot.[9]Mani Ratnam had initially planned to make Bombay in Malayalam and requested M. T. Vasudevan Nair to write the script. This was supposed to be his second straight film in Malayalam after Unaru (1985). But since the idea did not materialise, he decided to make the film in Tamil.[10] He held a photo shoot for the film with Vikram and Manisha Koirala, but eventually did not choose Vikram as he was unwilling to remove his beard and moustache that he had grown for the production of another film during the period, Vikraman’s Pudhiya Mannargal (1994).[11] According to Ratnam, Bombay was not originally planned as a political film: “It was a phase India was going through and these things affected me and found their way into my work.”[12] Koirala’s voice was dubbed by Rohini.[13] Nassar, a Muslim in real life, was cast as the father of Arvind Swamy’s character (a Hindu) while Kitty, a Hindu in real life, was cast as the father of Koirala’s character (a Muslim). Ratnam deliberately cast them in those roles as a statement.[14][15]When Ratnam approached cinematographer Rajiv Menon to shoot Bombay, he described it as a film about the riots and said that he (Menon) needed to “(make what came before) the riots as beautiful as possible”. So, Menon suggested shooting in the rains to achieve the effect. They shot the interiors of homes in Pollachi in Tamil Nadu and the exteriors were shot in Kasargod, and Kannur village in Kerala, and the song sequence Uyire was shot at Bekal Fort.[16][17] The demolition of the Babri Masjid was shown onscreen through newspaper headlines and photographs, as the makers did not want to show the actual destruction.
