At the trailer launch today, Saif Ali Khan was asked how was the overall experience of shooting the film. The actor shared, “I really enjoyed working on this film. We have taken a lot of efforts and shot at live locations. I used to drive early in the morning with no traffic travel straight to film city where there were 2 big Ajay Devgn Films sets.”
The Chef actor joked that he took 20-25 retakes for the film. He revealed, “It was a very comfortable shoot. The director focused a lot of us. He gave us a chance to give 1, 2 or even 15 takes.” Director Om Raut interrupted that sometimes it went to 27 or 28 retakes.
Saif jokes sometimes they gave 20-25 takes too. The Chef actor said, “It’s a big thing that I got this opportunity. We improved every time. It’s not that first or second take weren’t good enough, but we wanted perfection.”
Ajay shared the reason why Saif gave so many retakes. He said, “He (Saif) was behind his owm perfection but ultimately it’s the first or second take that has made it to the film.”
