Snowfall Delayed “Lootera” ShootPhantom Productions and Balaji Motion Pictures co-production Lootera starring Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha seems to have succumbed to the cold wave in the northern belt of the country.
The set of the film erected in Dalhousie where the actors were to shoot over the next couple of days has been destroyed. Courtesy: the snowstorm that has struck the area.
Mumbai Mirror has learnt that the estimated loss is about Rs 8 lakh. “Worse still, the set will now have to be rebuilt. This will involve non-stop work to reduce the loss of working days in the schedule,” informed a source close to the film.
“In fact, director Vikramaditya Motwane, DOP Mahendra Shetty and art director Aditya Kanwar were out on a recce of the set constructed in Gawar, an area three kilometers off Dalhousie. Scared about the entire set construction team being stranded there, with the heavy snow, Aditya even decided to stay back with them.” added the source.
While the sets are suffering, lead actress Sonakshi has her own set of problems to deal with. “Sonakshi has been stuck in the hotel room since the last three days. She reached Dalhousie last week only,” informed the source.
At the time of going to press, we also heard that lead actor Ranveer was stranded at the Jammu airport for the last two days. “The road from the airport to the hotel is snow laden and he will have to wait till the roads get cleared,” said the source.
