Vijay Raaz, Mukesh Bhatt, Raghubir Yadav and Madhur Mittal were comfortably ensconced in their heated rooms and were reluctant to come down to the shoot venue. However, when director Hemant Nilim Das and producer Vikram M Shah reached the swimming pool set, they were surprised to see Shivangi Mehra in her swimming costume ready for the shot.

Says director Hemant Nilim Das, “As I was walking towards the pool that chilly morning, with my producer, I was about to call Shivangi Mehra on her mobile and tell her that we had decided to postpone the shoot by a few hours, till noon when the temperatures became a bit more bearable. However, we reached the pool as I was dialing her number and was surprised to see Shivangi Mehra waiting for us all ready in her swimming costume and make-up. I asked her if she wanted to wait for a few hours, but she said she was ready to shoot and we continued with the shoot at temperatures well below zero."
