The iconic scene was appreciated and much loved by the fans.

Actor Anupam Kher also revealed that while shooting the 'Antakshari' sequence in the film 'Hum Aapke Hai Kaun'; he was facing facial paralysis. The actor was asked to take a rest for two months but instead of running from the troubles he faced the situation and shot the entire song.
