Earlier, actress Prachi Desai was signed on to play the female lead opposite Hashmi, but was later replaced by Esha Gupta, due to the fact that the director, Kunal Deshmukh, felt Desai could not fit the part of being bold and sensual, while Desai also was not comfortable with it. Bengali actress Paoli Dam was also reported to be considered for the female lead. In October 2011, film was shot in the lines of Delhi Airport Metro Express.
