Courtesy: IndaiFM Friday, June 01, 2007 While shooting for film Awarapan at a location called 'Ancient City' in Bangkok, the entire unit of the film became a victim of a contagious viral infection. It was courtesy of director Mohit Suri, who turned sick first and passed on the virus to the rest of the unit!
Despite that, shooting never came to a standstill but their condition was becoming worse by the day. The unit was lucky to have a father in producer Mukesh Bhatt who flew down from Mumbai immediately on hearing the news.
Remarks Suri, "Yes, it's true that we all caught an infection. I don't know what would have happened had it not been for Mukeshji who came down to Bangkok with a huge bunch of medicines for the entire unit." The movie has actor Emraan Hashmi and actress Shreya Saran in lead roles. Shreya Saran mega Tamil film Shivaji - The Boss is releasing in theatres on June 15th, in which she is acting with Tamil Superstar Rajinikanth.
