“The 2.0 shoot is over. Now we are doing special effects and VFX in state-of-the-art studios in the US and other places. The film will also be in 3D and will have a grand audio launch in Dubai sometime in October and that’s why we had earlier (made a mention) about a ‘3D Diwali’. Already, we have worked out an association with AA Films for the Hindi distribution in Northern India. In the south, we will be distributing it ourselves, through our network of trusted distributors.”
