Ranveer Singh's back injury not only delayed the shoot schedule of Vikramaditya Motwane's next, but it also played havoc with the natural setting that was chosen as a partial backdrop for the film

And now the makers have roped in a British company to create artificial snow, now that the actor is fit to start shoot again. While Ranveer was recuperating, the natural snow in Dalhousie, where the film was being shot started to melt.

After considering creating fake snow with special effects, the makers then contracted the British firm to make artificial snow at Dalhousie. This is believed to be costing them Rs 1.5 crore, while local municipal authorities will be visiting the sets to see how artificial snow is created in the hill-station. “Two snow effects machines, one paper snow rig package, a pump and the required spare parts have been imported by the producers,” reveals our informer.
