“After I recorded several versions, it was difficult to choose any one. So Shirish incorporated all of them in one song," said Nigam. “I am the chorus as well as the singer for this one, and all have still managed to sound different.” It was not just the female voice but a mixture of Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, French, and other accents that he included in the song to make it sound like a chorus.

Nigam even mimicked Akshay Kumar’s voice to make it look real and fit in the song. “But the one I enjoyed the most was singing in Akshay’s voice. In fact, I sound so much like him that even Farah couldn’t make out the difference,” he smiled.
