The dance track features Riteish and his group of banjo players along with Nargis Fakhri. Before Ravi okayed the last shot, he was surprised by an impromptu act by the cast on stage. Interestingly, once the song shoot came to an end, Riteish along with his banjo team and Nargis hugged each other on stage, which was not part of the dance performance.

Ravi later learnt that the impromptu group hug was out of sheer enthusiasm and happiness for the song completion. Since the act came out naturally and went well with the song’s ending, Ravi decided to keep it as part of the song.

“There is this thing about Riteish Deshmukh, he gives his all to whatever it is that he is doing. So when we got to shooting the song, it was really important that the last scene of the song that goes really fast and we thought it was best that we do a longish take and get all the cast to perform together. In that enthusiasm it was rather heart-warming to see Ritesh, Nargis and the whole crew hug each other at the end of the song. It fit so well with it that the director insisted on having it in the song,” quipped our source.
