In a Facebook post, Prithviraj wrote that the situation was continuing to get difficult for him and the crew as the Jordanian government revoked their permission to shoot in the Wadi Rum desert as a precautionary measure.
“We have now been told that an immediate permission for shoot to resume is unlikely due to the situation and hence, our next best option would be to return to India at the first available opportunity. As we had originally planned to stay and shoot in Wadi Rum till the 2nd week of April, our accommodation, food and supplies are taken care of for the immediate future,” he added.
