Let's make it, the workers will also be busy - Rohit

Rohit Shetty further said, “Sooryavanshi was not released. Indian Police Force was about to start and there was a gap of 8 months because the pandemic was going on. If workers were sitting at home, what should we do? We had this script for a long time, which was a simple and short film. So I thought, 'Let's make it, the workers will be busy and so will we.'"

Rohit also told, “It was a studio based film, no car flying, no action, no hero type entry.” He also said that when things became a little easier due to the pandemic, Circus was the first film to start after that. According to him, a lot of expenditure was incurred on this film, because every week blood tests, Covid tests, keeping people with antibodies and keeping those who do not have antibodies away from the sets, things like this were happening.
