Reportedly, a part of song was shot at the University of Western Cape, but what was surprising about this was that the song was shot when the University was the venue of an exam! Producer Shabeer Boxwala confirms the same and adds, “Expectation was very different song because we shot in the actual university during exam period. We had to keep the volumes low of the speakers, but still since it’s a Bollywood Film, all the eyes were on our cast and crew and we had some of the professors of the University to shake a leg with us. But in the end the song was becoming a task to shoot since we were going overboard with the timings, and we had to plead the dancers and students to stay on board and finish the song with us.”
Another part of the song was shot at one of the most exclusive clubs in South Africa and this too wasn’t a piece of cake, as is revealed by Shabeer’s anecdotes. “The other location where we shot this song was at the Shimmy beach club, which is the most happening beach club of Cape Town. At first we were not able to get the club as it was being used for their own private parties, but thanks to the Tourism of South Africa, we were able to spend the whole day at Shimmy’s and finish up the song giving it the scale which it deserved,” adds Shabeer.
If this was not all, the film team also managed to come up with 6-7 supercars for the song after the choreographer demanded it to add appeal to the track.
