It was earlier believed that Basu was reluctant to come on-screen with Hashmi but the actress denied that this was the case.
"I did not refuse to work with Emraan. It is just that I couldn't work with him earlier. He was really young and I saw him when he was 18, as an assistant director on 'Raaz'. When we were approached for a film, I looked way older than him because of my weight. Today, I look younger than I looked then," she said.
Basu had earlier acted opposite Dino Morea in the first 'Raaz' movie that was released in 2002.
