Rush-hour traffic during the day and permission hassles prompted Rohan Sippy and his team to shoot during the night

Major hassles in getting permissions to shoot on the streets of Mumbai made the makers of Rohan Sippy’s next film to have its mahurat at midnight.

Incidentally, the initial shoot of the film starring Kunal Roy Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana had to be done in the night, as there were traffic issues during the day.

A source informs, “This was no publicity stunt and producer Bhushan Kumar and Rohan decided that it would be the right time to begin the shoot. Due to the area being a heavy traffic zone, getting the required permissions was not possible. The team had to create artificial traffic in the night for the shoot.”

Bhushan tells us, “Our location was available to us only during the night. Everything fell into place and we completed our initial shoot.”
