Actor’s timely intervention gets film’s shoot back on track after gathered crowds cause delays Sonakshi Sinha, who is shooting with Saif Ali Khan in Kolkata and the interiors of Bengal for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullet Raja, surprised the makers by getting the shoot back on track when crowds were disrupting the schedule.

An insider reveals that the makers faced this problem in Kumartuli on the last leg of the schedule. “It’s a very congested area, and the makers had taken cops along. They tried shooting for two hours, but after a while, people started refusing to move away from the backdrop.

 A couple of balconies are part of the set, and they kept standing there to watch the shoot saying that they were in their houses, hence no one could ask them to move,” explains the source.


Producer Rahul Mittra adds that when Sonakshi noticed the delay, she decided to take matters in her own hands. “She left the camera and walked towards the area where these people were standing.

Taking the mike and folding her hands, she requested them to move out of the frame so that we could shoot there. Within half a minute, they left the place. It was a very sweet gesture on her part,” he recalls.


After that shoot, the crew was to move to another location, which became possible only due to Sonakshi’s quick thinking. “That location was an hour away, and we were losing light. She salvaged the situation,” says Mittra.
