Rani Mukerji’s comeback venture Mardaani seems to have hit a snag. Director Pradeep Sarkar was supposed to shoot at Mumbai airport on Thursday evening. But the shoot was cancelled as the necessary permission was denied.
Says a source from Yashraj, “Rani and her co-star Jisshu Sengupta were supposed to shoot a romantic scene on the Juhu beach early in the morning, and in the evening they were supposed to do a very emotional sequence at the airport. However, the airport sequence had to be cancelled.”
The sequence has now been pushed to March-end.
Says the source, “Pradeep has cancelled both the shooting on the beach and the airport sequence. He will shoot them both when the airport authorities allow shooting. In the meanwhile, a long schedule for Mardaani is planned in Delhi at the beginning of March.”
It may be pointed out here that shooting in public places in Mumbai is getting more and more difficult. Rensil d’Silva who shot his new film Unglee all over Mumbai says, “The formalities are a nightmare.”
