The schedule was about to end when the producer came to (choreographer) Saroj (Khan) ji and told her, “Now we are left with one the climax song and this set will be destroyed tomorrow. And you know how Saroj ji is. She said, “Oh, no problem. we will finish the shooting tonight.” I arrived at 6.45 and we kept shooting at 4 AM.
