Says a source, “The makers were planning to shoot a song sequence at India Gate, but they failed to obtain permission from the authorities concerned. As a result, the crew had to scout for an alternative venue.”
While the film's spokesperson was not available for comment, a unit hand confirmed the story, saying: “Yes, the shoot was called off at the last minute, causing a lot of inconvenience to the team. The day's schedule went for a toss, but we managed to find another venue. The song was eventually shot at Connaught Place.”
