To prep Emraan for the role, the unit called for help from professional illusionist Atul.

A source says, “We were shooting in Delhi at a theme park. We had a tight schedule but Emraan was keen to learn the act himself and then perform it under observation. We called Atul for help. Emraan learnt the trick in just five days. We were all surprised to see how well he learnt the tricks and shot the scene with ease.”

The actor says he thoroughly enjoyed the act and adds, “I decided to learn a couple of tricks from the magician there to make my character look more convincing on screen. It required a great deal of patience but it was good fun.”
