The sets which have been built to resemble a palace has been completely sealed off so that no pictures from inside are leaked. Sources say both SRK and Alia were left mighty impressed with the beauty and elegance that Bhansali’s sets displayed and congratulated and wished Bhansali all the best before leaving.

Last year during Diwali, SRK’s Dilwale had locked horns with Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani at the box office and the latter had won the race in terms of profits. However the same never affected SRK’s friendship with Bhansali and today’s visit only reiterates the same.
