Advani says the shooting schedule will be for 10 days with the entire cast, after which, the team will be left with a four-day schedule, scheduled for September-end. The film was initially supposed to be shot from 21 March to the beginning of April but was delayed due to the coronavirus -induced lockdown.

Neena Gupta and Kanwaljit Singh Seth will also be a part of this schedule along with Divya Seth, among others. Kanwaljit was among the many senior actors who had raised objections against the government’s resolution prohibiting actors above the age of 65 from shooting for films, TV shows and commercials. The resolution was quashed by the Bombay High Court. This is among the first films to be shot with veteran actors.
“It’s encouraging to see actors and the crew all prepped up and keen to get back to work. The safety protocols will be followed strictly on the set, and we are hoping everything goes as planned,” says producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.
Nikkhil also shared that Kanwaljit himself wanted to be on the set while Neena flew down from Dehradun for the shoot and has isolated herself at home.
John Abraham, who is also bankrolling the project, says they have "waited to ensure the unit is adequately secured given the situation and we’re looking forward to resuming the shoot.”
