The royal family of Dubai, who own a huge yacht, have made an exception for producer Firoz Nadiadwala, by allowing him to shoot on it next month.

The filmmaker admits that he didn’t face a tough time seeking consent either.

He says, “It will be for the first time that this yacht will be featured in a film. It is a lavish one and has an open-air swimming pool and 50 staff members and two helipads. However, since I know the family for years now, they agreed to give it to me for a scene without charging a single penny.”

The makers of Welcome Back are going to begin shooting for a crucial scene in the first week of December.

“Director Anees Bazmee and I have visited the yacht and made arrangements. We are planning to shoot with aerial cameras. Apart from flying the crew and stay charges, we won’t be spending too much money on the said location,” adds Firoz.
