Shooting hassles for KAL KISSNE DEKHA in South Africa By Joginder Tuteja
During the South Africa stint of KAL KISSNE DEKHA, a substantial portion of the film was shot in a University. While all seemed well on the location of the shoot, it wasn’t actually the case, as realised by the team of KAL KISSNE DEKHA within a few days. Apparently, the University Management had issues with the loud music that was being played for a song’s shoot and objected to it. The technical crew of the film was left with no choice but to play the music at a low volume even as an important number ‘Soniye Billori’ was required to be shot on Jackky Bhagnani, Vaishali Desai, 40 dancers and 150 junior artists.
Informs a source attached to the film, “The song’s shoot was on when all of a sudden the music stopped. No one knew who was responsible for that and even as we were trying to figure it out, a lady called Ferna was seen walking towards Vivek Sharma, the director of the film. There was pin drop silence as everyone guessed that there was something wrong. She screamed that faculty was complaining due to high volume and won’t tolerate any more disturbance in the normal day to day functioning of the University.”
Confirms Vivek Sharma, “We all were standing like students in front of her and she was going on and on. I assured her that we would play the song little soft now. I did blast the local production team though for their mismanagement but the challenge still remained. With as many as 40 dancers and 150 junior artists, how could we play the song in low volume? Nevertheless, we somehow found our way out and carried on with the shoot.”
However, this wasn’t an end to Vivek’s problems. He was constantly worried that Ferna would find a reason to stall the film’s shoot. This is why when she came over to him again with a complaint; it was Vivek’s turn to blast her.
“She started telling me that I couldn’t shoot in front some particular pillars as the University was having a graduation function. I lost it at that time and instantly fired her”, remembers Vivek, “I asked her to show me the contract where it was mentioned that there was a particular day fixed for the function and hence we couldn’t shoot. I told her that we would shoot till the function starts and then shift.”
This time around Vivek won the battle as Ferna was left speechless.
Laughs Vivek, “Honestly, even I couldn’t believe it. There was dead silence all around and all she did was look at me and say ‘Ok’. It was amusing and thankfully we could go ahead with our shoot in a normal fashion.” -Sampurn Media
