The makers of Shakal Pe Mat Ja have classified the film as a tongue-in-cheek comedy like Tere Bin Laden. And co-incidentally, on the last day of the shoot, they had a “funny yet serious” experience. It was the last day of the shoot and director Shubh, who also plays the main protagonist in the film, wanted everything to go off smoothly.

Apparently, the cast and crew were shooting in a mall in Kharghar. But in the middle of the shoot, the director found several people running helter-skelter in the mall. “People panicked after a unattended bag was found by someone. It was only after the security took charge that everyone realised it was nothing but a bag containing clothes and shoes. Someone must have forgotten it,” says a unit member.

“What was funny is that Shubh, who was also surprised to see people running around, managed to capture people panicking on his camera secretly since there is a similar scene in the film. He will be using the footage in the film,” adds the unit member.

Shubh confirms: “Yes, we were shooting at this mall and suddenly there was chaos all around. We had to stop our shoot for a couple of hours due to it. There was a bit of a panic amongst people but as soon they realised that it wasn't anything serious, things got normal and we finished our shoot.”

Shakal Pe Mat Ja is a true story of four boys, who want to show the government authorities how easy it is to plant a bomb. Actor Hrishitaa Bhatt has produced the film.
