On Saturday afternoon the cast and crew of Apoorva Lakhia's Shootout At Lokhandwala left for a road trip to Pune to press-promote the film.
"All of us barring Mr Bachchan and Abhishek are on the way. I couldn't put Abhishek and Viviek Oberoi in the same bus, could I?" jokes Gupta.
The crew of a TV channel (Aaj Tak) is also accompanying the Shootout team and would be shooting all the events from Mumbai to Pune.
Says Gupta, "We plan a premiere on Thursday at the InOrbit Mall. We've booked the entire mall. And at the center of the Mall we're putting up a stage, landing and all. And we've got all the musicians who've contributed to the film -Strings, Euphoria, Anand Raj Anand - plus the entire cast, performing live in the mall from 8 pm to 9 pm. This event would be thrown open to everyone in the mall. Even the film's screening after the live performance won't be elitist but more fun-filled, then post the premiere we'll have a party with dinner and drinks.'
"And," adds Gupta, "We've taken official permission to party till 4 am. There have been other premiers at InOrbit, but never this kind of a full-on event."
