Film shoot stalled after key character is diagnosed with pneumonia and is hospitalised. The shoot of Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge? had to be cancelled after Mac Mohan (best remembered as Sambha in Sholay) took ill and had to be hospitalised on Wednesday morning.
Says Amita Pathak, producer of ATKJ, "Mac Mohan, who plays himself in the film, was taken to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri after his health took a turn for the worse. He has been diagnosed with pneumonia and we don't know when he can shoot again. We can only hope he gets better soon."
She adds, "Mac Mohan was to shoot for three days. It was a party scene which had Ajay Devgn, Satish Kaushik and Mac Mohan in it. We have put up a set designed by Sabu Cyril at Film City, costing almost Rs 30 lakh for the shoot."
Directed by Ashwani Dheer, Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge? also stars Konkona Sensharma and Paresh Rawal. The film is about an unwanted guest (Paresh Rawal) who enters the household of a married couple (Ajay and Konkona) and keeps extending his stay leaving the couple exasperated.
