Torbaaz, which also stars Nargis Fakhri, had rolled in Kyrgyzstan in December 2017, followed by another shooting stint in May 2018. After a spate of intermittent shoots, the Girish Malik-directed venture reached the finish line in February last year. Ask Malik why the post-production took almost a year, and he attributes it to the visual effects employed in the thriller. "The film is high on VFX; we have recreated the entire city of Kabul with the help of special effects. Such films take time." Mittra chimes in, "Since we had to [depict] Afghanistan, we did a recce for six months to get the right location [and zeroed in on Kyrgyzstan]. So, one can't say that the film is delayed because such processes take time."
