While you are relaxing and transporting yourself to another world altogether while listening to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s latest number Channa Mereya, we have to tell you that its shoot was not an easy task, especially for Anushka Sharma. The actor, who looks jaw-dropping beautiful in a bridal attire in the song, did not have an effortless shoot as it appears on the screen. We cannot take our eyes off the beautiful lady in the song but believe it or not, her costume was 20 kilos heavy. So, while to even think of it makes us feel dizzy, Anushka wore it for as long as the song was being shot.

No, the song wasn’t shot just in a day, a source reveals that the song was shot over the span of four days and in a place with no elevators. Yes, you read that right. So just imagine how it would be to leave you at a place without an elevator or escalator, wearing such a heavy lehenga! The source further adds that the song was picturised on the first floor of a palace and had no elevators. Anushka had to take the stairs at least 25-30 times a day.
