Pointing out that the film has horror elements and she gets scared easily, Fatima told Mumbai Mirror, “I am a fattu at heart and am already dreading the shoot. As l am a fattu at heart and am already dreading the shoot. As long as I am on the set with people around me, I will be fine. But as soon as I am alone in my room, meri barbaadi hone wali hai.”
The shooting of the film is expected to take place in Darjeeling where the hills can create quite a spooky environment for Fatima. Talking about her plans to deal with it, she said, “There is a particular teddy bear that is my bodyguard. I am going to take it along and sleep with it. Also, you will immediately identify my room in the hotel because the lights will be never be turned off through the night. I have asked them to give me a room in the middle.”
