While the final shot that makes the cut may appear fantastic on screen, the effort that goes into creating it is rarely acknowledged. Aditya Roy Kapur gets candid about the difficulties encountered while filming his new series, The Night Manager.

He added, "All these locations look beautiful on camera, but when you*re shooting in them, it can be challenging especially for a series of this scale. For example, Rajasthan was extremely, extremely hot. We were there shooting in the desert in the middle of nowhere, it got so hot at one point that our vanity vans were going off, the generator was overheating. So we were essentially just having to open our doors and windows and hope for some kind of cross ventilation. We had to break shooting for three hours in a day to avoid people getting heat stroke."
