This is a work-cum-holiday trip as Mukerji is scouting for locations in Jerusalem for their upcoming fantasy adventure, Brahmastra. Says a source, "The two will take off by tomorrow. Though Jerusalem is the top spot for the shoot, the director is also zeroing in on locations along the Israel-Jordan border. The film's recce is crucial, because once the locations are finalised, Mukerji is keen to start shooting immediately."
