In the film characters are based in Rajasthan, the action scenes were actually all shot at Film City in Mumbai, it was necessary for the team at Pixion Studios to ensure that everything encompassed a Rajasthani aura in Bol Bachchan. The surroundings and ambient structures in the scene were all made using CGI in the post-production phase.
"In the Jama Masjid sequence, the mosque seen in the film is actually recreated in CGI. In this sequence, Abhishek Bachchan and Asrani were shot against chroma backgrounds where they were seen talking on a terrace. Different rounds of discussions were held on the sequences as the entire outlook of the film progressed, Rohit briefed me on the sequences and then we shot it according to the plan chalked out. When Rohit shoots VFX sequences, they're edited as soon as they are shot and passed on to us for the post-production process", elaborates Naveen.

"To bring about the iconic Jama Masjid sequence, we went to Delhi and took pictures of the iconic mosque for our reference. In the movie, the live action elements visible were only the people moving about in the background around the mosque. We used a mix of a CGI generated model made using Maya's NURBS modeling method and projection mapping with the appropriate lighting to achieve this. There was no single approach as the sequence, the multiple plates made were then later merged and composited using Nuke."
