Says a unit member, “We were shooting for a few sequences and during a casual discussion, Emraan narrated the story of how the dargah has been featured in many of his previous films. He also said that all his films, that had at least had one scene shot there, did very well at the box office. He then mentioned this to director Kunal Deshmukh, asking him to shoot a scene at the dargah.”

The source adds that Emraan insisted on shooting at Haji Ali dargah as he considers it lucky for him. “After searching the area thoroughly, we finally zeroed in on a small house opposite the dargah. The scene was shot in such a way that the dargah is visible in the background,” says the source, adding that the actor also visits the dargah whenever he gets some free time.
