Yami Gautam told IANS: "We were shooting under tough weather conditions because the cold was bitter. There were a lot of outdoor sequences and keeping the light and weather in mind, we had to pack a lot within a day, every day. But I was ready to battle all that because whenever I am in Himachal, I feel a sense of belonging...when I see the sunrise, those snowcapped mountains and realise the fact that I am born in Himachal...this is my birthplace, it really gives me goosebumps!"It feels so spiritual for me that I feel if there is God, He exists there...in the silence, in the mountain, the snow and I feel that I get the best hug from Mother Nature. You know every day, after finishing our shoot, when I would looked outside the window from my car, even though I was exhausted and even though I know I had very few hours of sleep...when I would looked at those mountains all through my drive from the film set to our hotel, I felt recharged."

'Bhoot Police' is a horror-comedy directed by Pavan Kirpalani and produced by Ramesh Taurani and Akshai Puri. A bio-bubble was used to film the footage last year when the 'Unlock' process began. Yami's birthday and Diwali fell on the same day because of the same reason. Her Diwali celebrations were instead spent with the squad of 'Bhoot Police', she added.

The 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' actress further added, "I was born in Himachal, brought up in Chandigarh. But I always visited Himachal because my relatives live there. This time, during the entire shooting of our film, somewhere my connection with Himachal has got re-established and I feel proud to be a Himachali, a 'Pahari'! I am not exaggerating when I am saying, I belong to the mountains."
