A certain scene in the 3D horror film required the actress to stand by the edge of a 50 ft high cliff as she hallucinates falling off - While the actress who suffers from the fear of heights, suggested using a body double, director Vikram Bhatt insisted on Esha doing it herself - To add to the situation, the scene was shot in the later hours of the night, adding to the Esha's fright.

The actress however, decided to give in and face her fears head on. Says Esha,'I suffer from acrophobia and had to stand on a 50 feet high cliff. We were shooting for it at night and it made me more nervous.'
