On the venue, Mahesh Bhatt expressed: "Rahul Roy has a special place in my heart. And I am glad he is in Cabaret, playing himself. I would like Pooja to take centrestage now, as it is her baby."

"Cabaret is the sum of Love-Life-Death-Dance, and is inspired by real-life that is far more dramatic than anything else. We gave Kaustav a title and he came up with the story of a woman, her pain, her angst and her journey. All my movies have always had a central female character and Cabaret reinstates that," he added.

Talking about the role to be played by Rahul Roy, Pooja Bhatt said, "We have a special song in 'Cabaret' called 'Paani Paani'. It is my first item number. Since it is a story of a girl who becomes a big superstar from being a dancer, we had to show her journey through the song.

"That is when we decided to call Rahul for a cameo appearance. He is playing himself in the portion, re-creating the 'Aashiqui' pose with Richa," Pooja added.
