In the video, Akshay Kumar spoke in detail about how the fire engulfed the entire set. Just when they were thinking of shooting for an important part of the film, the whole thing turned to dust within minutes. Director Anurag Singh too revealed that he was shattered as they still had 10 to 15 days of shoot pending. But all thanks to Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar who gave their full support during this trying phase and they managed to wrap the movie.

Akshay praised the director and gave full marks to the team for creating an alternative plan. The different teams (including the production designers and VFX department) went on to recreate the set in Mumbai through set extension and visual effects.
