Interestingly, No team of AD’s approached R Balki’s team. As a safety measure, the lapels mics were also replaced by the boom mics. As per reports, the chances that the team will have to dub the film in a studio are very less.

1 minute 30 seconds. The footage of the shoot is being edited now and will soon be given in the hand of the Ministry.
