Team looked after Bhatt when she was homesick in London
Bhatt recently told Variety, "It was my first Hollywood big English picture experience...I had quite a task at hand because I was shooting for the first time an action movie. But I'm also pregnant so there were so many layers for me to deal with." However, she mentioned that she was taken care of well, especially when she was homesick while filming in London.
'I think we're onto something pretty cool'
Bhatt also spoke about her experience of collaborating with Gadot and Dornan for the first time.
