Rajeshwari, who is a singer herself, was mesmerized by some soul-stirring folk music she heard while shooting. The local cooks appointed for the crew were supposedly folk singers who kept the crew entertained. In her free time during the shoot, Rajeshwari would join them, learn the songs and sing along with them.
