During the run through of the great robbery of Shalimar Diamonds. Charlie informs the team that the room green room which connects the Vault through Ac duct is booked for International Dance Competition Constants.

Direction Errors in the Movie. Nandu plays an imp role in the heist. As he dupes the son of Charan Grover, However there where many scenes where Charan have encountered Nandu during the competition & even when Charan & his Son were being taken over the winning team is cheered near the entrance of the hotel where Charlie revels the secret to Charan. During this scene also Charan can clearly see Nandu but the Director couldn’t see it.
