In this scene the 4 bridgegrooms (aka Jolly) run for their life from JD's house which is shot in the Burghley House in England, UK. After considering 250 castles the filmakers decided to zero down on this one which is 400 years old. Shooting in such an old and grand location was not easy. The crew was tied with a lot of restrictions but completed the shoot within 15 days. Special permission was granted to shoot around the palace and certain places inside it to safeguard the royal paintings and art work. Sajid has captured 3D images of the interiors and created a replica of it on a set in Mumbai.
Pakeezah took nearly 14 years to shoot because of a change in relationship between Meena Kumari and Kamal Amrohi the director from warm to worse and then back to a compromise. Meena Kumari and Kamal Amrohi were married when Pakeezah was first conceived.
