'Apart from some 400 dancers, there would be about 2,000 people acting as a crowd'
I called about 12 assistants, and each assistant was seen as a group of 100 people. With that, I designed the song in a week's time. We shot the rough version, edited it and showed it to Ashu. He incorporated some changes, and then we shot the song with 100 dancers.
I wanted to go all out, as this was the first time I had choreographed such a big song. Apart from some 400 dancers, there would be about 2,000 people acting as a crowd.
