It took more than a year of Nikhil Advani's life to bring CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA to a stage it is currently in. And today, when he thinks about the experience that he gained during the making of this biggie, he can't help but look back in awe.

'CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA has truly been a wild ride. We have shot in some unbelievable locations. We had a rig on top of the Great Wall of China and Dee Dee's (the action director) stunt team on wires suspended off the wall. Can you imagine, shooting action on one of the Seven Wonders of the World, in freezing cold, running up and down and all over the wall for different sequences? It was breathtaking in its audacity', Nikhil can't conceal his excitement as he recollects all the adventure that he was a part of while filming this Akshay Kumar starrer.

Nikhil wasn't the only person to be having adventure while shooting for the film. Since the film has been shot across three different countries – India, China and Thailand, there was a huge crew from each of these three countries that was involved in the production.

Says Mukesh Talreja, one of the producers of the film, 'We have had Hindi–Chinese, English–Chinese, Thai–Chinese–Thai–English–Hindi, basically chaotic translations going on the whole time. At times it was hardly funny. Another major feat was recreating our Chinese village and cheating some other Chinese locations in Thailand.'

How did he make it all possible?

'Well, we had to be very careful with the details of our production design. We were shipping props from India to Thailand and also from China to Thailand while making sure that we got all the intricacies accurate. Of course language barriers were unavoidable, but luckily it all led to only minor loss in translations, which in retrospect were mildly funny at times.''
