John adds, “It was one of the longest outdoor schedules I have been a part of an probably the most exhilarating too. We shot for the movie day in and right out at Philadelphia and New York. Eventually, we ended up being ahead of schedule. I am confident that I have yet another beautiful movie in hand”.
Talking about his experience on working with the movie, John says, “All credit to Adi (Aditya Chopra) and Kabir for making such a movie. Whether it was story built up or characterization, they have worked so hard on getting it all just right for the movie. Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh also have been fantastic co-stars. The movie is a dramatic thriller and a completely new kind of experience for me. As an actor, I feel enriched”.
