According to reports, it is believed that the shooting of the movie began in Goa. The scene was shot on a secluded beach with Shah Rukh Khan himself. Report says, Alia and SRK both of them had to walk a lot to reach their first mark for different shots as it was a walk and talk scene. An ATV was called, so that SRK and Alia could just ride the ATV up and down on the stretch of the beach.
