The director Robbie, who is currently on the recce in Jammu & Kashmir, spoke about the schedule, and said, “I’ve been to Kashmir several times to shoot for commercials in the past. My father was in the armed forces and was posted there. I was very young when I first visited the Valley and I wish I could shoot there again and again. The people, the scenery, the food, everything is splendid,” as reported by Mumbai Mirror.

John and Jackie’s characters are based on real people, and the producers have roped in National award winning make up artist Vikram Gaikwad to create an authentic look and feel for the characters, along with ace costume designer Amera Pulwani, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.

John just wrapped up another action thriller, Nikhil Advani’s Satyamev Jayate, and has begun work for an action franchise titled Attack, which he expects to be the mother of all actions films.
