Shoot days for #thewhitetiger. It’s so hard to shoot here right now that I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live here under these conditions. We r blessed with air purifiers and masks. Pray for the homeless. Be safe everyone. #airpollution #delhipollution😷 #weneedsolutions #righttobreathe
The situation in Delhi was somewhat similar to that of her last visit in the city while she was shooting for her film ‘The Sky is Pink’ in which she was last seen opposite Farhan Akhtar.
