Speaking about shooting the entire song is one take, choreographer Farah Khan told the Times Of India that she knew Sushant would be able to do it perfectly.
"For the title track, we rehearsed the entire day and then finished the shooting in just half a day! As a reward for nailing it perfectly, all Sushant wanted was food from my house. I got home cooked food for him. When I see the song, all I can see is how alive, how happy he looks in it... and this song is always going to be very special for me," Farah Khan said.
