It is by now obvious that the major part of HEYY BABYY's shooting revolves around a seven month old baby girl, Juanna. And one may not be very much off target in saying that while she is the real star of the film, the support cast includes the likes of Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Vidya Balan!

Just to emphasize the importance of the top star of HEYY BABYY, let us tell you about the last day of the shoot, which featured Akshay Kumar, before he left for a month long schedule of BHOOL BHULAIYAA.

Since it was a fairly lengthy sequence, involving Akshay Kumar, baby Juanna and others and the baby needed to be in deep slumber (during the scene), unit members were on tenterhooks. All along the shooting, the baby had been sleeping for half an hour at a time. However, Akshay had just five hours left. The shooting started as soon as baby Juanna fell asleep. And for the next three and a half hours, the unit spoke in hushed whispers lest the baby got up.

It appeared as though the 'responsible' seven month old superstar knew about it because she slept peacefully till the last shot was canned!
