Talking about the hard work put in by the entire team during the practice sessions which stretched over for approximately 8 months, Ranveer Singh said in a recent media session, "My entire team has been practicing since 8 months and the prep process was very intensive. Boys have worked very hard to come to this stage and they are finally ready to commence the principal shooting of the film. Today, we are off to the UK for four months for the shooting. I have to say that all the credit goes to Kabir (Khan) sir and his team as the film is shaped up extremely well. We are very very happy with the way it is shaped up."
