Talking about the film, director-choregrapher Ahmed Khan who’s producing it with Zee Studios, said that they are planning to finish the shoot by March. Om is going to be shot in three Indian cities and one schedule abroad.
While this is Sanjana’s second film in the lead, something about being in front of the camera has changed for her ever since the huge loss of SSR. The actor talked about the same and mentioned how she will never be able to ‘wrap her head around ‘the circumstances’ under which her first film released.
“I don’t think I’ll ever be able to wrap my head or heart around the loss and the circumstances amidst which our film reached the audience. However, the unfathomable love, appreciation, and embrace of the audiences made for the most befitting tribute to the legend that was Sushant and helped me cope with the tragedy. I’ve always believed that love is the strongest emotion in the world,” she explained.
