Surveen Chawla, who is currently shooting in Canada for her untitled Punjabi film, had apparently not allotted any dates to the makers of 'Hate Story 2' for its promotions. But it turns out that she has now decided to put that shoot on hold and return to India to promote her Hindi film.

A source says, "Surveen has been shooting in Canada for many days now. In fact, even for the first look launch, she had landed in the country only for two days after which she flew back to Canada to resume shooting there. When Hate Story 2's marketing team was drawing a plan for the promotions, she told them that she won't be available for the same and that she could come back just one day before the film's release."
The creative team then thought of coming up with a special promotional song featuring Sunny Leone. A crewmember says, "It would have been tough for us to promote the film with just the male actor (Jay Bhanushali). So we decided to shoot a special song with Sunny Leone."
When Surveen got to know about the promotional song, the news is said to have had the actress worried. "Surveen realised that the song will create a lot of buzz especially since she is not available to promote the film. She doesn’t want Sunny to steal her thunder, so she has decided to return to India and make herself available on more days for the film’s promotions."
Vishal Pandya, the film's director, denies a dates issue with Surveen. "Yes, initially, she was not available to take part in the film's promotions. But now she is coming back because she knows that her presence is important for the film's publicity," he says.
