The humshakal movie shooting going on on the island has been creating quite some buzz in Mauritius. For many reasons. Some pleasant reasons. And some, well. The cast has attracted the crowds. Fans have been pulled like magnets to watch their favourite ‘stars’. And, come on, Mauritians love to watch shootings of movies, irrespective of who is shooting. However, the ‘get lost’ incident has turned off many Mauritians. Well, guess what? There are more incidents that have been occurring, involving the team of the movie shooting.
The incident at Bagatelle is already being circulated wide and free among Mauritians. Now, another incident took place at Hotel Intercontinental, Balaclava. Shooting of the movie was being done there. Two Mauritians were walking around the hotel, and to their joy, they found the crew at work. Almost automatically, one of them reached out for her phone to take pictures. She succeeded in getting an actress into frame. Everything was going on well, until Sajid Khan, the maker of the movie, seized the phone and deleted the video that had been captured by the Mauritian woman. Uh-oh. The guy was obviously irritated. You would think that they are not used to the behaviour of fans. But oh well. However, it is also to be mentioned that Sajid Khan apologised later on.
As if the drama going on was not enough, the coming of the wife of Saif Ali Khan, lead actor of the movie, has been to add up to the ‘show’. Kareena Kapoor has arrived on set and since then, a cold war has been triggered. From what has been reported, the latter has made her utter dislike to some of the other actors – actresses, to be more specific – known. Well, well, this movie shooting sure is going to be memorable.
