The shoot took place at the Chandivali Studios on a non-AC floor with several crew members hanging around. Yana informed Mid Day, “It was very hot as there was no air conditioning. But it was for the Bhatts after all. I loved the team."
Director Mohit Suri added, "It's true that it was very hot but I must say Yana understood the circumstances and co-operated with us that we finally got what we were looking for. Yana worked totally for our song."
Early reports of the item number of Murder 2 suggest that actress Bipasha Basu was the original choice for the item song but Bhatts dropped her by replacing her with the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4 sensation Yana Gupta. Yana told, “I think Bipasha not doing the song worked in my favour but what's more important is that it worked in favour of the song too!"
Item girl Yana Gupta has been sweating it out for her item number in Murder 2. She has shed her clothes for the track 'Aa Zara Kareeb Se.' Reportedly, the 'laila o laila' girl of Chalo Dilli faced the wave of the summer season, while she was shooting for Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt's flick Murder 2.
