The film’s final schedule was reportedly shot in Gujarat, and wrapped up on January 26.
On the last day of the shoot, Taapsee wrote on Instagram, “Not sure if I have the time and space to explain how this film actually happened. From the basic storyline I heard in Chennai 3 years back to actually complete its filming against all odds in these challenging times. This was one hell of a driven team effort! I’m going to reserve the details for later coz I’m sure we have many more battles to fight till the release but what I can say is this is one team that’s gonna do it all with a smile and most effortlessly coz the captain of this ship @akvarious believes in working strictly in between chilling with bunch of friends on set, instead of the other way round.”
Meanwhile, the actress also has Shabaash Mithu, Dobaaraa and Looop Lapeta in the pipeline too.
