It is common knowledge that the climax of Mahesh Bhatt's Awarapan has been shot in Lahore, making it the first Bollywood title to have been shot in Pakistan after Henna. Both the female protagonists of Awarapan, Shreya Saran and Mrinalini Sharma, also play Muslim characters, Aliyah Hamid and Reema Zaidi respectively.
To give his characters an air of authenticity, director Mohit Suri ensured that there was always a Muslim consultant on the sets to guide the actresses. When spoken to, Suri confirmed the news; 'It is true that since Shreya and Minty (Mrinalini) play Muslim characters, it became necessary to have a Muslim consultant each from India, Hong Kong and Thailand to guide them during the shoot in these countries, particularly in the Namaaz scenes.' Actor Emraan Hashmi plays the films male lead role
