Last week, Goregaon’s Film City saw an unusual visitor, one that actually scared all the other members of the industry away. When the cast of Hemal Thakkar’s show Ruk Jaana Nahi was busy at work, a leopard managed to sneak into the sets to frighten the living dayslights out of everyone present.
The crew, including actors Annirudh Dave and Pooja Sharma, were terrified because the animal refused to leave. “We tried to facilitate its exit, but it just wasn’t moving,” reveals Annirudh. The leopard entered the sets at about 6.30 pm when over 50 people were busy with their tasks. The director and the crew even lit the path leading to the jungle, but the animal refused to leave.
“During the two hours that it was on the sets, everyone was on their toes, terrified. But it was harmless, it didn’t bother anyone, in fact, it didn’t even roar ,” adds the actor. A few hours later, the leopard suddenly leaped over the 10-foot high boundary wall and disappeared into the darkness.
