Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was based on Ruskin Bond's short story "Susanna's Seven Husbands". Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj asked the writer to expand the story resulting in a novella that was then adapted for the film. The film's script deviated from the novella and Bond later revealed that he was not happy with some of the changes. While Bond provided three possible climaxes for the film, the scriptwriters came up with their own ending. A day after the film's release, Penguin released a collector's edition of "Susanna's Seven Husbands", which included the short story, the novella, and the film script. Bond appeared in the film in a cameo role playing a man whom Priyanka Chopra's character Susanna meets at a bar and promises to meet at a church the next day. It is later revealed that Bond is a Catholic priest who officiates the wedding of Susanna to Jesus Christ as she becomes a nun. This was Vishal Bhardwaj's second film after "The Blue Umbrella" (2007) that was based on a Ruskin Bond story.[1][2][3][4]
  • During the production stages, this film was first titled "Seven" and later "Ek Batta Saat" before its final title was chosen. Vishal Bhardwaj had considered directors Karan Johar and Imtiaz Ali for the role that was eventually performed by Irrfan Khan. Both directors had declined the role since they didn't think it suited them. Actor Mohanlal had agreed to do the film but had backed out due to his busy schedule in Malayalam films. He was then replaced by Annu Kapoor. Shahid Kapoor, a fixture in Vishal Bhardwaj's films, opted out of the film since he was busy with "Mausam" (2011) directed by his father Pankaj Kapur.[5][6][7][8][9]
  • This was actor Vivaan Shah's debut Hindi film. His father Naseeruddin Shah also had a key role in the film.
  • Vishal Bhardwaj hired Creative Director Todd Tucker as the makeup artist for Priyanka Chopra in this film. At the time, Tucker was known for his makeup work in Hollywood films like "Mrs. Doubtfire" (1993) and "The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003). His work in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008) was particularly relevant in this film since Priyanka Chopra's character needed seven distinct looks with ages ranging from 30 to 60.[10]
  • This was singer Usha Uthup's first significant acting role in a Hindi film. She had appeared in minor roles in films before. She also sang a song in the film and won the only Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer of her career for it.

    Song

  • Darling - This song was based on the popular Russian folk song "Kalinka" composed by Ivan Larionov in 1860. The original song was duly credited in the film's audio release.[11]
