While heading to the Golden Temple to seek blessings before a film’s release is a common occurrence, shooting inside the sacred temple’s premises isn’t too easy. And that’s something that director Raja Krishna Menon of Airlift fame discovered when he landed in Amritsar to shoot with Saif Ali Khan for Chef.

Apparently, the authorities had a tough time keeping the pilgrims, visitors and even the sevaks and workers of the Golden Temple from jostling for pictures. Says Raja, “It was tough, since we  aren’t allowed to disturb other pilgrims at the Golden Temple. And when they saw Saif in the flesh, they wanted pictures. But we finally managed to get some really beautiful shots.”

 

The director recalls with joy and nervousness the challenges of shooting at the sacred place. “There was a huge crowd, but they were really well-behaved. It was quite a beautiful experience. They just wanted to see Saif. I was quite surprised to know how many of them in the crowd were Airlift fans.”
