Actress Priyanka Chopra, who had to slip into several outfits like corsets, fishnet stockings, and train with French cabaret dancers for the song Asalaam e Ishqum from her forthcoming film Gunday, says it was difficult to do the track.
“It was a really tough song for me to do and I’m glad it’s being appreciated,” Priyanka said in a statement.
The video is inspired by the chic burlesque acts of the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret of Paris.
She reportedly had a tough time shooting for the song as her father (Ashok Chopra) passed away a few days before the shoot in the summer of 2013. The costumes too had to be created overnight.

“I really admire Priyanka for the courage and determination that she displayed during the shooting of the song. She put in all her pain and converted it into an intense energy, which has reflected in Asalaam e Ishqum,” said director Ali Abbas Zafar.
