“The fact of the matter is that this is on location shoot on the street of Mumbai ..
It is Sunday .. formal permission taken for shoot at a lane in Ballard Estate .. permission sought for Sunday because all offices are shut and there is no public or traffic ..
One lane in the region BLOCKED off by Police permission for shoot .. the lane barely 30-40 meters ..
The dress I wear is my costume for the film ..
AND .. I AM JUST FOOLING AROUND BY GETTING ON THE BIKE , OF A CREW MEMBER .. NOT EVEN MOVING ANY WHERE, BUT GIVING THE IMPRESSION THAT I TRAVELLED TO SAVE TIME .. 🤣 ..
But yes I would do it if there was a problem of punctuality .. and wear helmet and follow all the rules and regulations of the traffic guide lines ..”
