“That set was 100% practical. The set of the Chinese restaurant as well as when I pushed the oven and the headquarters of the Red Daggers is unveiled in the corridor … it was totally practical. So that day, while I, Iman [Vellani] and Sharmeen [Obaid-Chinoy] we were rehearsing, walked through the door and weren’t in costume yet. I pushed the oven thinking it would take us to another set. I didn’t know, it was 100% practical. So when I pushed it, it kept going backwards, it kept going backwards about 6 or 7 meters and we found ourselves in this beautiful bluish green corridor that leads to the lair of the Red Daggers. It was just amazing. We literally stopped in the middle of our rehearsals because we were in awe of the set they had built. It was amazing. “
