Emraan Hashmi has two more chartbuster songs to his credit in RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES i.e. 'Maahi Ve' and 'O Jaana'. However, if he had his way, he would just have been content with 'Mahi Ve' and allowed Adhyayan to hog all the limelight with 'O Jaana'. It was on the insistence of Bhatt brothers that he agreed to feature in the music video of 'O Jaana' and though he wasn't too pleased about it, considering that he didn't really feature in the scheme of affairs for the aforementioned song, he finally gave in half heartedly.
'''O Jaana' is Adhyayan's song and it features in its original version in the film where he dances along with Kangna. Since it has nothing to do with my character in the film, I felt that my presence in the music video would hamper it unnecessarily. I did raise my apprehensions with Mohit (Suri) and Bhatt saab about it but they had their own reasoning'', says Emraan Hashmi who continues to work with Bhatt brothers in one movie after another ever since he started his career with FOOTPATH.

''Moreover, if you hear 'O Jaana', you would realize that it is basically a feel good and romantic track'', he goes on to add, ''Earlier it seemed to me that it didn't go down well with the kind of image I have formed with the audience over the years. My songs are more Sufi and have darker tones to it, something like 'Mahi Ve'. This is why I consented to feature in its music video as well. Moreover, since the song is picturised on me and Kangna in the film version, it made sense as well.''
However, Bhatt brothers and Mohit Suri really wanted him to be a part of both the music videos and he eventually agreed.
''Yeah, I did shoot for them and they are currently on air as well. Now let's see whether the two music videos feature in the film as well or not'', signs off Emraan.
