Even as terror struck Mumbai, the unit of one of Akshay Kumar's upcoming films continued its shooting without any interruption. This particular movie De Dhana Dhan also stars Katrina Kaif, Sameera Reddy and Suniel Shetty.
The terrorists had made a sudden attack on Mumbai last Wednesday night and kept the city under siege for three ensuing days. But the cast and crew of De Dhana Dhan managed to report on the film's sets at Mehboob studios on Thursday morning.
The buzz is that the director of the film Priyadarshan had a meeting with producer Ratan Jain and the film's leading stars, after which they all decided unanimously that they should continue shooting.
The director says he was overwhelmed to see the entire crew of 250 people reporting to work on Thursday morning, especially since most people in the city that day preferred to stay indoors. They continued to shoot without a break till Sunday.
Many in Bollywood were shocked at how the film's unit continued working in the midst of such high tension. The film's actors simply maintain that work is worship and they can't really be stopped by a couple of terrorists. The show must go on.
Must say this is remarkable and sure is one of a kind dedication towards work!
