This might be ironical for the Deols, who call UK their second home and are frequent visitors to the country, but the release of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 has been delayed because of visa issues.

Apparently, the UK embassy took a really long time to issue work permits for the cast and crew. In fact, Neha Sharma, who plays one of the female leads in the film, was one of the people whose visa was delayed and this, in turn, impacted the entire schedule of the film.

When called, Neha said, “I’m not sure what the problem was as I’ve travelled to the UK many times before and never faced any problem. But finally, I got the visa and could reach there and shoot.”

This, however, pushed the schedule to mid-winter and the makers had to cancel  the shoot because of unfavourable weather conditions. Thus, the whole film got delayed.

Even director Sangeeth Sivan faced problems in reaching the UK to start the shoot. “We all faced problems. I too got my visa just a day prior to when I was supposed to leave for the UK. However, Neha’s visa took a bit longer and we had to reschedule the whole shoot,” he says.
