As soon as he began working on the song in May, the actor called his Student of the Year 2 director Punit Malhotra, requesting him to develop the music video.
“I wasn’t surprised when Tiger said he has sung a song; he has a lovely voice. I was kicking myself because I should have displayed his singing skills in Student of the Year 2,”
Excited to reunite with the leading man of his college caper after over a year, the director also feared shooting in the midst of the pandemic.
“Initially, we were scared at the idea of going back to work. But once we did, it felt like a reunion of old friends. As the director, I was doubly vigilant and adopted safety measures over and above those stated by the government. Tiger Shroff was a source of support. His constant reassurance — ‘Punit, we will get by this’ — helped me”, he adds.
Armed with a crew of 40 members, the actor-director duo shot the music video over three days at a five-star hotel in Lower Parel.
“Since the hotel was in a lockdown, it was the most sanitised place we could have shot at. We chose a theme that didn’t need a big team. At the same time, we ensured we did not compromise on the scale. We explored a tender romance between two hotel staff members,” shares Punit.
