Confirms director Sanjay Gupta , Baba still has his shop at Shivaji Park and Mahesh Manjrekar who is a common friend introduced us. His inputs went a long way in giving John the look that he has in the film. I told John that he would have to wear Kolhapuri chappals, have a tika on his forehead and even put oil in his hair.
