Shreyas Talpade got the biggest surpise when director Priyadarshan constructed a treehouse at Wai where they were shooting for their film Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal produced by Percept Pictures. Shreyas loved the Wai sets so much that he yearned to have a treehouse constructed. He casually mentioned it to Priyadarshan and the next day it was all done. “The next morning when I woke up, I was shocked to see a treehouse being constructed for me. I was touched that Priyan Sir took so much pain to make my one dream come true,” said Shreyas.

Ramesh Sippy has believed in taking risks ever since the release of his first directorial venture "Andaz". Now, when he returns to direction after 17 years, the filmmaker is set to venture into the unexplored territory of thriller genre.
"The challenge for me is to venture into the unknown every time I direct a film. When I directed my first film 'Andaz', it was considered risky to do a love story between a widow and a widower. The thrill in doing a thriller is that I have never attempted this genre before," Sippy said.
