Shooting in Rajasthan
The battle sequences were done in Rajasthan. It's difficult shooting there because the weather is in the extremes -- sometimes extremely cold and sometimes, extremely hot.
Out of the many locations in Rajasthan, one was in the desert. The sand kept flying in our eyes, plus walking up and down sand dunes was quite difficult. It is not easy to shoot in deserts. But thankfully, nobody was hurt.
There is a fight scene between Hrithik and Aishwarya. But that was a romantic, masti fight, where they tease each other. That has come out really well.
It was not difficult to teach Aishwarya, as she knew horse riding and sword fighting from her earlier English film, The Last Legion.
