It has taken as much as 4 hours to just get ready physically and 2 hours to get out of it, with the shooting schedule having been intense and demanding. The filming has been done in a non-AC environment. The character of Kali is arduous as the actress needs to wear paint that requires multiple touch-ups, with the action sequences and dialogues having been fierce as well as challenging. The overwhelming look and feel have taken up a lot of physical energy. However, Pooja has felt truly blessed to have played the part and to have felt a pure love and reverence the audience has for Mahakaali.
