Abhinav Kashyap, the first time director tells that he just knew that Salman is a very popular and huge star, but he saw his popularity rate from his eyes and got shocked.

He reveals, “A major portion of the film was shot in Wai, a small hamlet in Maharashtra. Every day, hordes of people would turn up to see Salman and they would scream out ‘Salman bhai, Salman bhai’.”

“We could not control the din as we were shooting outdoors. Most of the time I would running up to Salman to give him instructions since he could not hear me from where I was standing. Understandably, I would be physically exhausted by the end of the day."

He adds that whole day he would just run behind the star to give him instructions, but he stunned to witness his popularity and felt lucky that he got the chance to direct him.
The director also had to manage with the timings the star would get comfortable in and he adds, “With Salman, the day starts off late. He comes in by 10.30 a.m. and is ready to shoot by 12 for a 9 a.m. shift. But once he gets into action, every scene gets canned pretty fast and we would invariably wind up the shoot on time.”
