Director Kunal Kohli needed ample space to put up a set for the next schedule of his film, but he couldn't find it here so had to scurry to Madh Island to build his set.

'I needed to create pre-partition Punjab in 1910 and couldn't shoot in actual Punjab because the topography has changed completely. So we decided to put up a vast set. But none of the studios in Mumbai had space! So my art director Munish Sappal, who is a Punjab expert after 'Pinjar' and 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi', finally built it on Madh Island,' said Kohli, who had earlier directed 'Hum Tum' and 'Fanaa'.

On the set, choreographer Chinni Prakash is set to shoot a qawwali where Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra will battle it out over that thing called love.

'The qawwali, written by Prasoon Joshi and composed by Sajid-Wajid, is a hell-raiser. Both Shahid and Priyanka, though thorough professionals, are apparently bracing themselves for doing an 'Aashiqana qawwali' in full public view, replete with references to boys with roving eyes and girls making eyes...'

In the film, Shahid plays a Muslim boy, while Priyanka essays a Sikh girl.

Shahid-Priyanka had rocked the box office with their superb chemistry in the 2009 hit 'Kaminey'.
