Reports say that director Mudassar Aziz wanted Ananya's first shot in the film to create an impact on the audience and hence the Director told Ananya to refer to Shah Rukh Khan’s shot from Main Hoon Na. The scene where Shah Rukh Khan alights from the train is the scene he wanted Ananya to recreate so as to create the same impact as SRK had created.
A source from the sets revealed to TOI that Ananya was so thrilled with the reference she had to use to recreate that she shot for the scene without any fear as the director was planning to shoot the scene on an actual location of a crowded railway station. He wanted to make sure it was perfect. They shot the scene at Kanpur Central station.
The actress said, “Director Mudassir Aziz asked me to watch Shah Rukh Khan’s 'Main Hoon Na' where Shah Rukh Khan alights from the train as he wanted the same impact in the scene. I was so thrilled because I have always been a great fan of Shah Rukh Sir and always admired him. There was no better reference than Shah Rukh when it comes to such scenes. He makes every scene so realistic. I wanted to bring the same effect on the screen and I have tried my best.”
Pati Patni Aur Woh is a remake of the old cult classic with the same title. The film is set to hit the theatres on 6th December 2019.
