Not only Hrithik but actor-director Farhan Akhtar was also given the responsibilities to direct the number. The song 'Khwabon Ke Parindey' is about three boys on a road trip. Zoya insisted that the boys should do more than just act in the film. She requested them to make the song on their own.
The song features Hrithik talking about freedom and breaking away from the monotony of life. Hrithik added (TOI), "We all landed up early on the sets, as Zoya wanted me to choreograph this song. She was wondering how we would do it. So Farhan and I showed her how we could do it. He was the camera and I was the actor."
