Speaking about the process of filming the Sanjay Dutt-starrer in his interview with Bollywood Hungama, Jimmy said “Shaam ko sundown hota tha packup hota tha toh mein drive karke film city ata tha. Jab log light up kar rahe hote the main wahi kapde pehenke, hospital ke, usi bed pe so jata he. Kyunki mujhe pata tha ki poori raat shoot karna hein. Jab shot ready ho jata tha ye log utha dete the…bimaar toh lagna hi tha. Logon ko lagta tha ki waah character mein hi hein ye (In the evening, I would drive to Film city. While the Munna Bhai crew was lighting up the location, I would wear my hospital patient costume and doze off on one of the fake hospital beds that was part of set furniture, because I knew that we had to shoot all night long. People would think wow he is really a character actor).”
