Bollywood Hungama reported that the entire team of Cirkus is heading to Ooty to shoot the last schedule of the film. “Rohit had locked Ooty as one of the shoot locations a long time back, but due to the pandemic restrictions, the schedules were sent into a tizzy. However, with things returning to normal finally the entire crew is pretty kicked about the final schedule of Cirkus”, said a source close to the venture.
