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!"
