They then stand at the Statue and pay their respects.
In the story, Jethalal’s friend has invited Gokuldham to witness and enjoy this special kite-flying festival. According to Dilip Joshi, they all had becomes like fans wanting to get close to the Statue for a closer view.
‘We all were happy to go there, but shooting was a big issue. With so many people and all the fans surrounding us, it became a very big crowd, but in the end everything went smoothly and all of us had fun,’ comments producer Asit Kumarr Modi.
According to Ambika Ranjankar (Komal), she had visited the Statue of Liberty in New York as well and found the Statue of Unity to be at the same level.
