Long wait for Sarbjit crew

In October last year, director Omung Kumar had gone to Wagah Border to do a recce for his biopic Sarbjit. Now his film is finally on the floors but there seems to be a stumbling block. It has been two weeks since Omung and his team have camped themselves in Amritsar but they are yet to get the required permissions to shoot at the Wagah Border.
The team has to shoot one of the most important sequences in the film at the high-security spot. It’s the scene where Dalbir Kaur, Sarabjit’s sister, played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is interacting with the officials at the border asking them to allow her to meet Sarabjit in Lahore.
As of now, the director has put that on hold and is shooting some additional portions with his lead actors Randeep Hooda and Aishwarya Rai in the nearby locations. They are all waiting for a nod of approval from the Ministry of Home Affairs to shoot at the border.
