Producer Sajid Nadiadwala is an unhappy man. A video of the making of a song called Papa Toh Band Bajaye… from his upcoming film, Housefull 2, has been leaked on the Internet. The video, besides showing a glimpse of the actors shaking a leg, also captures director Sajid Khan and Nadiadwala
showing off their dancing prowess.
“Ever since mobile phones became ubiquitous, it has become very difficult to hide things from your film. Sometimes, it’s also a publicity exercise camouflaged intelligently. But this time, a very personal thing has been made public,” says Nadiadwala.
The song, choreographed by Farah Khan, also features Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh and Shreyas Talpade dressed in colourful tuxedos dancing to the comical lyrics.
“It was the last day of the shoot with Rishi and Randhir Kapoor besides Mithunda on the sets. And everything including their dance is out on the leaked clip,” says the producer, who had earlier contractually forbidden his Anjaana Anjaani (2010) cast and crew from going on any social networking site to write about his film: “Banning cell phones won’t work. I will sit with actors and their staff members to sort out the issue. Even actors feel insecure with such intrusion.”
