In an interview with Peeping Moon, the Ishaqzaade actor shared that the scene that she is talking about is the one sequence in which her character Sandeep and Pinky played by Arjun Kapoor are in a hut hiding from the cops while Sandeep is also coming to terms with the fact that she has lost her baby after suffering a miscarriage.

The actor further added that the scene location was very filthy and by the time they would finish the shoot and go back home, Pari would find herself covered in mud. Shedding light on the same, she revealed that there was so much dust on the shoot location that her hair would turn white, but she did not clean her hair and body. She would go back to her room, sleep and come the next day to shoot in the same filth.
