With Sonam Kapoor heading out of Edinburgh for Mumbai for the promotion and release of her new film I Hate Luv Storys, the shooting for Mausam in Edinburgh has slackened a bit. The hero Shahid Kapoor, who also happens to be the director"s son decided to take an off for a 3-day visit to nearby London. Only Shahid"s father Pankaj Kapoor knew about his son"s where abouts while the rest of the unit was kept in the dark.
Though Shahid maintained before his departure that director Pankaj Kapoor had planned solo sequences with Shahid while waiting for Sonam to return, the fact of the matter is the unit was left with very little to do after Sonam"s fleeting return to Mumbai which was planned well in advance. Says a source, “Shahid didn"t have much shooting to do once Sonam left. So he took off for a secret holiday to London for four days."
A co-actor from the unit lets the cat out of the bag, “I don"t know what Shahid told others. But the truth is, without Sonam there was little he could do for the camera. Mausam is a love story and 90 percent of the time, their scenes are together. With Sonam gone Shahid left for London. For what, we don"t know." Apparently on his return Shahid was teased mercilessly about his “secret rendezvous." Shahid kept quiet about the trip.
