Says the source, “We had to shoot in crowded locations like the Kolkata airport, Ballyganj, Park Circus, and New Market. The crowds in these places were impossible to control. We had placed the cameras secretly. Vidya would then get into camera range and before the bystanders recognized the star we were out. If Rani had also accompanied Vidya it would"ve been impossible to control".
Director Rajkumar Gupta is tight lipped about the details in Kolkata. “All I can tell you is that shooting in Kolkata was even tougher than Delhi. But it was fun. By now I am used to shooting in crowded main streets with my actors. It was the last two days of shooting. On the second day after we finished (dress designer) Sabysachi Chakraborty who belongs to Kolkata, took the entire unit out for dinner. We had some terrific Bengali food, We celebrated till the wee hours".
Rani, alas, was no part of the celebration.
