The pretty actress was aided in her efforts by choreographers Uma and Gaiti. This is the first time that the two characters go clubbing in the movie. Talking about them, director Vijay Lalwani explains, “Deepika plays a fun girl, an extrovert, while Farhan is the exact opposite. He doesn’t dance or drink while she has already downed a couple of pegs and is now trying to get him to match her, jhatka for jhatka.”

The director adds that they used popular steps so that the audience could connect with the song instantly.
