Sanjay Dutt’s Bhoomi Stalled Due To Unruly Crowd
Bhoomi touted as Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film faced an unusual situation because of which the shoot had to be canceled. The Omung Kumar-directed film was being shot 15 kms outside Agra for a wedding sequence.
As the word of Sanjay Dutt starrer movie being shot spread like wild fire, numerous fans thronged the area to get a glimpse of their Khalnayak star. And soon the crowd turned rather unruly and it got rather difficult to manage them. Eventually, the makers were forced to cancel shoot.
A source from the production unit says, “We were shooting at Kaushal Bajpai house in a village called Bamrauli Katara near Agra on Thursday. It was a night shoot and we had more than adequate security in place. Apart from Sanjay sir’s bodyguards, the state police force had deployed their men on location.”
“We didn’t realise when the crowd wildly multiplied, with some turning unruly. It wasn’t safe for Sanjay sir to come out for the shoot. Aditi (Rao Hydari, who plays his daughter) was also part of the scene. We waited for hours for the crowd to thin out before calling off the shoot,” the source continued.
Director Omung Kumar confirms the news, adding, “We were all set to roll, but thousands of people just took over our set. We couldn’t manage the crowd; it was impossible to shoot that night. It was in the best interest of everyone to cancel it.”
