So that was, at times, overwhelming." He further added that there was a lot of positivity and enthusiasm for all of them as well as the crew. “During shooting, we had hundreds and thousands of people on certain days lining up on the streets and up on top of bridges and in buildings, you know, after every take, cheering and applauding. I've never experienced anything like it. And as I said, I have such fond memories of India and the people there," he said.
