There will be clues present in the song, which is shot very aesthetically. Even the lyrics have been closely worked upon and a sharp mind will be able to detect the villain, read a statement.
According to a source, as the film is a suspense thriller so when the idea was discussed in an internal meeting Banerjee loved it and instantly got involved in scripting and planning the video.

International dancer Lauren Gottlieb, who forayed into Bollywood with "ABCD: AnyBody Can Dance", has choreographed the dance. She got interested after Banerjee narrated to her the idea of tucking in clues between the song.
