It’s not rare that crazy climate changes throw shooting schedules out of gear. But a few men in showbiz are really tough. They brace the weather changes to wrap up film schedules on time. Cool na?
One such gentleman is Bobby Deol who lead the cast and crew of Sangeeth Sivan’s untitled film in Chandigarh against foul weather to make up for the lost time.
The winter was pleasantly subsiding in the north when sudden thundershowers set the temperatures falling rapidly. “We were shooting some song sequences. Thanks to the sudden rain spell, the shoot had to be called off for three days,” informed Jaswant Khera, executive producer for K Sera Sera Productions.
He adds, “When we resumed, the unit found it tough to work in the chilling weather.” In the absence of infrastructure, the location wasn’t easily approachable by road. As a result, the vanity vans and cars were parked a kilometer away from the set. Out of choice the unit hiked it up to the center of action.
A unit member informs, “Walking to and fro from the set to the van was time consuming. It was freezing while we shot the sequence. The only warm places were the vans and the cars. Surprisingly, Bobby stayed hung around at the set instead of his van. Not only did he lunch on the set but would stay back till the day was called off.”
Confirming Deol’s professionalism, Khera says, “Thanks to Bobby for his cooperation. We often requested him to rest in his van, but he always refused because he wanted to help us wrap up shoot on time. He insisted on saving time wasted on going to and fro from his van. Such attitude brightens the work ambience. It sure is a morale booster.”
Shreya Saran plays Deol’s love interest in the film that also toplines Nana Patekar.
