Taking time off from the delightful din, Rajkumar admitted he had to rush back to Mumbai for the final 3 days' shooting. "Yes, we've to shoot from December 12 to December 15. After that I've one week-long schedule in January. But Vidya is not required for that."
When asked if the schedules had to be worked out in-sync with Vidya's wedding plans Rajkumar got understandably evasive. "The schedules were worked out well in advance, so that Vidya's work was completed by the middle of December. Vidya has been with the project all through, giving a hundred percent of herself."
