“Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays an astronaut, was keen to shoot the film at NASA and other parts of the US. In fact, director Sanjay Chauhan had written the script keeping NASA in mind. Sushant went to NASA in October to train for his role at his own expense. After all this pre-shooting preparation when the makers indicated they might pull the plug, Sushant and Chauhan were livid. They wanted to close down the film rather than compromise on the location. Sushant and his director have accepted the relocation as a symptom of the current recession in Bollywood. With Sushant’s recent films not doing well, the producers had no choice but to scale down the budget. They could either shut down the project or move to a budget-friendly location.," said an unverified source, according to a DNA report.

Singh and Chauhan apparently conceded to the relocation on the condition that London/England be referred to as 'America' in the movie. Due to the subsidies granted to film productions in the UK, the relocation is considered to be a more feasible and lucrative offer as it will severely decrease the film cost.
