Her stunt was choreographed by Peter Hein in the same way he would've done for any male hero, without any concession for gender. The sequence required powerful acrobatic action, putting Deepika through continuous and swift movement through various locations at lightning speed. This action sequence received high praise from audiences and critics alike, becoming one of the highlights of the movie.
