Director Ayan Mukerji described the challenges of shooting the climax scene of the film in an all-new BTS video from the set. "The most challenging sequence in our film has been our climax. It is a 20-minute sequence with action, visual effects, and emotion. There’s so much going on that it’s like a movie in itself. We’re shooting it against a blue backdrop and it was just blue, everywhere. Because the kind of lighting that we needed to create and the kind of stunts that we needed to pull off would be much better served on an interior stage. It made sense to bring all the different teams together and shoot this in a place like Bulgaria," Ayan said.
Adding on to this, actor Ranbir Kapoor said, "The climax is the high point of the film and I don’t think I’ve ever done this kind of prep before." Actress Alia Bhatt shared her experience saying, "It’s the first time I am starting a film with the climax, it’s the first time I’m doing a film like this at all."
Produced by Dharma Productions & Star Studios and directed and written by stalwart Ayan Mukerji, the film stars an ensemble of highly revered actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
