Kubbra revealed in an interview that the scene was shot seven times because director Anurag Kashyap required views from seven distinct viewpoints. She said that he ‘pulled out all the stops’ to ensure that everything was in place for the shoot to go smoothly.

Speaking to Mashable India, Kubbra said, “The first take I did, he came back and said, ‘We’ll go quickly for the next one.’ The second one, he said, ‘We’ll go quickly for the next one.’ The third time I did it, he shifted the camera to Nawaz. Then we did something else. And the seventh time, when I did it… I was broke.

“I was genuinely broke at that point. I was highly emotional also. And he walked up to me and he said, ‘Thank you. I’ll see you outside?’ That’s when it hit me that the scene was over.”

She further went on saying that she “stayed on the floor, weeping.”

“I was just crying and crying and crying. Nawaz said, ‘I think aapko bahar jaana chahiye kyunki mera scene abhi bacha hai (you should go outside because my scene is still left),’” she said. “Unka entry baaki tha (His entry scene was still left to be shot),” she added with a laugh.
