In the film, Randeep plays Sarabjit, and Aishwarya Rai plays his sister Dalbir Kaur.
“The makers were stuck when it came to final stage. And then the makers requested Aishwarya to intervene. She then agreed and requested (Home Minister) Rajnath Singh, and other important officials to grant the permission. And the authorities gave a thumbs up for the shoot,” said a source aware of the developments.
The crew will shoot for the sequence on Sunday and will eventually head to Delhi for a two-day shoot and then to Mumbai. The film is slated to hit the screens on May 19.
