Reportedly, Sanya did not get much time for practice with the gun since she is juggling Atlee’s film, and Guneet Monga backed Kathal. A source revealed, “Shah Rukh and Sanya had to film high-intensity stunts during the schedule. Undergoing gun-training for four to five days before the shoot would have been ideal. But Sanya’s calendar did not offer such a window. So, before facing the camera, she underwent an intense prep of a few hours that familiarised her with the working of guns.”
Not just that, Sanya also did not get much time to practice kickboxing and somersaults that are integral parts in the sequence. The same source said, “Since she is a dancer, her agility helped her ace the portions.”
