Earlier Salman Khan had been denied visa by the British authorities and the original shooting which was to happen in London got cancelled and the movie shoot was then shifted to Warsaw in Poland .
Said Salmn Khan“Had the British authorities not refused me the necessary visa, the original shooting would have been done in London, but I am happy that I have come to Warsaw to finish the film. Poland on the whole is a very beautiful country and the city of Warsaw is a place of my dreams.”
Salman Khan went on to add that he would encourage other makes to come and shoot in Poland as well as stated, “I wish more and more Bollywood producers would opt for the country (to shoot films) as all the technical facilities are there. What else can one desire for! Polish people are very understanding and friendly. I would love to come again and again even to chill out from my heavy commitments.”
Monika Kapil Mohta, Indian ambassador to Poland, said: “For the past three years or ever since I have come to Poland, I have been pleading with Bollywood producers to do something here. Finally, Nadiadwala has obliged us and this will be one of the biggest achievements of my term.”
Monika Kapil Mohta even mentioned that people in Poland look up to Bollywood films and are inspired with what they see. She stated, “Bollywood has become an important tool to project India as a soft power. Polish youth watch you with admiration. Your films have created a new excitement about India. We hope your word of mouth will also create more understanding and curiosity about Poland in Bollywood circles.”
The ambassador also praised the role of the Indo-Polish Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IPCCI) for creating a proper forum to lure Bollywood producers. IPCCI is hopeful that in the coming year some five to six film units will be shooting in Poland.
