Recalling an incident while shooting for the film, Varun said: “When we were in Singapore, her sister Shaheen was also there. All of us had gone out with a few other people but these two left in between, saying that they want to buy tea. I got so confused as to why do they want to buy tea in Singapore? Then we entered a proper tea shop with many kinds of teas. I got very fascinated. There’s also a proper tea bar. So, it was fun.”
