A source from the crew tells Mid-Day, "The shooting had to be stopped mid-scene when a power cut happened. The power outage lasted for more than 12 hours. Even though the makers arranged for generators, we could resume the shoot only by early evening."
"Both Shahid and Shraddha found out about the hydel projects that are pending approvals from the ministry of Water Resources. The locals told them that they face power cuts regularly, some as long as 10-12 hours. These inputs helped them make a few improvisations to the story," adds the source.

Says a source to DNA, “Despite it being set in small town, the team is packing up early everyday because Shahid comes and gives clean shots.”
