Pandey who was present for the shoot told Campaign India, "The promotional film basically sees Mr Bachchan introducing the Rann of Kutch to the world. We are shooting in various parts of Gujarat. The film captures the beauty of Gujarat and what it can do to the world."

Interestingly, Bachchan insisted on traveling Economy class on a Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Bhuj. It is learnt that he turned down a request from the tourism minister of Gujarat who offered to fly him in a chartered plane. Pandey said, "Mr Bachchan had no qualms at all about travelling economy class. It was just the question of reaching our destination on time and for him, the shoot has been of utmost importance."
