With the growing excitement on Salman Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer film Bodyguard, which resumes its shooting today, we at Oneindia bring you the direct feel of the shooting straight from the sets.
Students of Symbiosis International University, Lavale campus had a merry time during the past couple of weeks as they followed their favourite Bollywood stars while they shot for a movie around the campus.

It all started when strange people who had ID cards around their neck that said “Reel Life Productions Pvt. Ltd" started unloading truckloads of fancy equipment and attire at various placed on the hilltop campus. Word got around quickly, that a movie shoot was scheduled to take place on our campus. Further enquiry revealed that the flick was a Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor starrer called Bodyguard.
The shoot was supposed to continue for at least 2 weeks which includes shooting in our classrooms, auditorium, assembly hall, corridors, main entrance and of course the playing grounds. Day after day, hundreds of these strange people or as they call themselves, “shooting crew" crowded all around campus. These included the production staff, junior artists, support staff, the actors, their personal staff and some other categories of staff I am aware of. In their attempt to keep students from hindering the shooting, the bodyguards of the Bodyguard crew would stop them at random, make them wait until the director shouted cut over the radio. Sometimes, the star-struck students complied. At other times, ironically they took detours or argued their way into classrooms!
Informal mini competitions were held on a daily basis to get the best amateur shot of the Bollywood stars on campus which included Atul Agnihotri, co-producer of Bodyguard and a well-known name on the Bollywood circuits. Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor were everywhere; even professors couldn"t resist mentioning them at least once during their lectures. Students couldn"t stop showing off their good fortune and bad photography skills as they posted amateur shots of the stars on social networking websites, making their off campus friends turn green with envy.
Sadly however, no classes were cancelled on account of the ongoing shooting. Sometimes conducting classes with all the commotion and the extremely attractive junior artists outside, posing to be reel life fellow students in Kareena"s reel life College, seemed like a futile exercise. For now, the shoot has been adjourned in the light of Kareena Kapoor"s ill health and Filmfare awards. The shoot is supposed to resume from the 1st of Feb and this time, to the delight of all the male students the shooting will be done inside the Boys hostel.
