Did R Balki make Arjun Kapoor shoot non-stop for a day?

Getting a chance to work with childhood crush Kareena Kapoor Khan in R Balki's 'Ki And Ka' is enough reason for Arjun Kapoor to bring out the best in him. But the makers seem to be pushing him a bit harder than that — apparently making him shoot non-stop for a day to keep the budget in check.
Arjun Kapoor and R Balki
Arjun, who plays an at-home husband in the film, was shooting at a city studio last week where a set resembling a home and kitchen had been erected. "But their schedule was not really on track. A day before the set had to be dismantled, Balki realised that a lot of portions were supposed to be filmed. If he extended the schedule, it would have added to the film's expenses. So, Arjun began shooting on Friday morning and without breaks, wrapped it up in the wee hours of Saturday. That was 22 hours of non-stop shoot," informs a source.
The actor shot multiple scenes to avoid delay in the schedule. "He kept changing one costume after another and hurriedly completed the scenes. Consequently, Balki saved on the rent for costumes, art work and studio booking by winding up the schedule in limited time," says the source, adding that the film's outdoor shoot is currently underway.
