In the first edit of Go Goa Gone,we had a five-minute sequence after the three friends Bunny,Hardik and Luv along with Luna escape the zombies at the bungalow. In the first part of the sequence,the friends manage to find some rocks and spend the night safely. Before sleeping,they tell Hardik that if he turns into a zombie at night,he should remember they are his friends and not eat them.

In the second half,it’s morning and the boys are trying to figure out the direction they should head to,in search of the boat. It takes a dig at the lack of survival skills in slackers. They know it is in the north,but they don’t know where north is. So they try to imagine the map of India and then figure out where the Himalayas must be,so that they can walk in that direction. This entire sequence had to be edited out because the second half had to stay true to the genre and have more action than humour.

After the escape in the night,the four of them no longer have the time to stop and think or talk. They have to keep moving to survive.
