no sound-proof stages, X was largely shot at night. They
would commence shooting at 1 am after the last local
train had ground to a halt and pack up before the first
train left Churchgate station at the stroke of 4 am. The
crew also had to be extra-cautious about extraneous
noises, as they were shooting with a Tanar ‘single-system’
camera, which recorded sound directly on to the film. X
took months because of the hazards of having to record
under difficult conditions and the need to keep the
project a secret.”
