The shooting of UTV Motion Pictures' Shoebite, starring Amitabh Bachchan, shifted from Chandigarh to the Taj City of Agra, last Saturday. Interestingly, the whole day of the shoot at the historical Strachey Bridge did not see the megastar mouthing even a single dialogue. Most of the shots consisted of Bachchan jogging up ('padyatra') the bridge, followed by his faithful pet dog (in the film).
However, despite Bachchan's instructions of a tight security and at the same time keeping a touch of humanity (towards the crowd/fans), the shoot was marred by an untoward incident.
As per our unit sources, one of the extras (who goes by the name of Pradeep) spoilt the shot while trying to capture Big B on his mobile camera. Obviously the security personals jumped on to Pradeep and as they were about to rough him up, Bachchan graciously intervened and stopped them. He instructed them to return the mobile to the owner, after the day shoot and also advised the concerned person to take care not to spoil the shooting next time, for his or any other star's film
The shooting venue of the film will now move to New Delhi for a 4-day schedule.
