It’s a boy takes girl out, situation where Babloo (Tiger Shroff) takes his beau Dimpy (Kriti Sanon) who comes from a conservative family, out as he wants her to enjoy the night life in Delhi. To showcase their excitement and enjoyment, director Sabbir Khan decided not to have choreographed moves for the song Aa raat bhar but asked the actors to follow their instincts and move about as they would if they were enjoying themselves on an outing. Since the film is based in the North, a set resembling Delhi locations was constructed at Karjat near Mumbai.
“I wanted to keep their moves as realistic as possible and that’s how Tiger and Kriti were briefed. In fact, the track was recorded about six to seven months back and we used to play it often after shootings and between breaks and the actors and my team were very familiar with it. So when we were shooting it, everyone including the assistant directors and costume designers jumped into the frame and became part of the background. There was a lot of fun and laughter on the sets during the three days we canned the song,” said Khan.
