A while ago there was news about how the unit of Salman Khan's ambitious period film Veer was in trouble for causing damage to the Amer fort. For the uninitiated, the shooting at the sixteenth century Amer fort was brought to a halt after six days following a wall collapse.
The Rajasthan High court gave its nod for the shooting to resume but this decision comes with a rider. The picture is not clear though. The damage to the historical structure may or may have not been done but the Veer producers have to abide by the condition.
The producers have been asked for Rupees 20 lakh for damaging the wall of the protected Amer fort. The producers will have to pay and they've been given four days, two to shoot and two to wind up. Then they have to leave.
Vijay Galani, the producer of Veer has said, "The crew will have to wind up the shooting within four days and pay Rupees 20 lakh as compensation to the government. This amount will be utilised to restore the fort and to give to those injured in the wall collapse. I'm happy that the court has made this order."
But this might prove to be a temporary relief for the producers. The Ministry of Culture at the Centre has taken a serious note of the damage caused to the fort's wall and an enquiry has been ordered.
