Nia Sharma added, “I remember eating only Quinoa and very little food for seven days. There were times when I would faint also during rehearsals but I did not give up, I just went all out and I am very happy with the outcome of the song.

In fact, I also had a fever for a day while shooting because of the exertion but I wanted the song to come out nicely.”
