How Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol Shot Gerua in Iceland. It's Not Pretty

A still from the making of the song Gerua.

New Delhi: In a new 'making of' video, Dilwale co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol explain what it took to film their song Gerua, dressed in summery outfits in the bone-chilling temperatures of Iceland.
