‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm says shooting of ‘Million Dollar Arm’ in India became a challenging experience due to the scorching heat.
Hamm, 43, plays the lead in the Craig Gillespie directed movie, which tells the true story of sports agent JB Bernstein, who faced with a crisis, turns to India to find baseball’s next great pitching ace in the many cricket loving teens from the country, reported Contactmusic.
“It was a challenging shoot. May in India is literally the hottest month. So much so that all the Bollywood movies basically shut down and move indoors. They don’t even shoot outside in May,” Hamm said.
“They were looking at us like, ‘No, no, no.’ No one shoots outside in May, you’ll die, you’ll melt, your camera won’t work. But we were like we are going to do it because this is the time we have and it was challenging,” he added.
