Writing a caption accompanying the scene, Chopra wrote, “The fire was real in the scene as those days there was no digital fire. For that scene, Nana Patekar had refused to wear the fire suit as the actor felt that his acting would be ruined. Yes, I said I won’t shoot if you won’t wear the suit. After that he wore the suit so I said wear your pajamas as well. ”
The filmmaker assumed that Nana would wear the suit after this exchange, but little did she know that the actor would challenge her instructions. Nana decided to skip the suit and even burned during the shooting.
