Tasveer producer Shailendra Singh revealed, "Akshay is very close to everyone on the sets and he doesn't want anyone to work on Diwali. He therefore planned a lavish party for the entire unit on Diwali day here in Cape Town before leaving for India. But being a professional that he is he understands the needs of the producer and is taking just a two day break."
Tasveer is being touted as India's first psychological thriller and the final schedule of its shooting is going on in full swing in Cape Town. The film is being directed by Nagesh Kuknoor and stars Ayesha Takia in the lead. It was earlier titled Eight By Ten but the makers have reverted to Tasveer with 8x10 in a smaller text below.
