A Janmashtami sequence was shot with Sonu on Saturday. The Govinda Yuva Mandal, a professional dahi handi group,was hired for the shoot. Says Sonu, "It was a coincidence that we shot the dahi handi sequence on the Janmashtami eve." Adds the actor, "When I had to break the handi, I was thrilled and everyone on the set was also excited. There were six pyramids and I had to climb up and break the handi. Though it's a first time for me but I did it with full confidence."
After the shoot the Govinda Yuva Mandali asked Sonu and the rest of the cast to do a festival ritual. "They played the Nasik dhol and dance with them. I happily agreed to be a part of the festive mood." Says Sonu.
