Sidharth Malhotra's 'Shershaah' was delayed as the team had to wait for the team that was redirected through Leh due to the ground tension in Srinagar
Sidharth Mahotra, who went to Kargil on Monday, hours after the Central Government revoked Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, he will start shooting for the Captain Vikram Batra biopic, 'Shershaah', today. Initially, filming was scheduled to begin on Wednesday. However, some of the heavy equipment was delayed due to restrictions imposed by the Government as precautionary and safety measures in light of development.
Shabbir Boxwala, who is producing the film with Karan Johar , reports that the film team arrived at the scene on Monday and Tuesday, working with the resources that had arrived on time. Some of the heavy equipment, such as the lighting truck and some crew members, was delayed as their route to Kargil had to be diverted through Leh instead of Srinagar, where the situation is still said to be a bit tense.
The producer argues that between Leh and Kargil, there is no problem. There is a lot of security and record in Srinagar and the surrounding area, Shabbir said, adding that, otherwise, everything is peaceful. When asked if they had any apprehension after Section 144 was imposed in the state on Thursday, he adds, “The people of Kargil, Leh and Ladakh are basically calm and calm. It is also said that the problem in Srinagar is not so bad. The protests are more or less peaceful. Even the police and the army do not want anyone to get hurt.
Now, the team hopes to catch up with lost time as they begin filming today. “Sidharth and the rest of the cast and crew have become accustomed to the stage in recent days. Sid also has extra time for training and preparation, ”concludes Shabbir.
