"People love the commotion in such films. The way actors escape through tunnels and drainage pipes makes the film interesting. The double crossing, scheming and plotting are something that keeps people glued to the screens," said Abbas-Mustan.

"Shooting in foreign locations isn't new, but we chose locations that are different from the rest. We even shot a part of the film at the North Pole. It has been the best experience for us. We knew we couldn't go in the winter as it is dark all day," said Abbas-Mustan.
