Tiwari and his team made several rounds of a house in Narhi locality where they seemed to have decided on a house near the Society Park. Interestingly, Nitesh’s wife and director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari too has shot the blockbuster film Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) in the same locality, adjacent to the house they have figured, tells a localite. He was also a co-writer in the film and has so far written story-screenplay and dialogues of all his projects including Chillar Party and Bhootnath Returns.
