Shahid Kapoor Falls Ill, Shooting Cut Short

The last five days of the final schedule of Shree Narayan Singh’s  Batti Gul Meter Chalu had to be cut short in Uttrakhand.The crew has returned to Mumbai without completing the schedule.

Says a source, “The  last schedule in Dehra Doon was supposed to be over  on 26 March. However Shahid  took ill with very high fever. He had to be rushed back to Mumbai on 21 March. The entire  unit would  have to re-assemble in Dehra Doon for the remaining five days’ remaining schedule.”

 Back in Mumbai there is much consternation over  Shahid’s viral fever.

A  source close to the actor says, “Shahid  is very health conscious and has  never cancelled even one days’ shooting in his  life. He is  very upset over the 5-day  cancellation of  the Batti Gul Meter Chalu  schedule. The shooting so far has been a breeze in  spite  of the huge crowds that  collect to  gaze at Shahid who  is now  a 300-crore  club after Padmaavat.”

When contacted  to comment on the schedule in Dehra Doon being  cut short  producer Prernaa Arora  shrugged it off as a part   of the  business. “There will be illnesses and sometimes schedules do get postponed delayed and cancelled. No big deal. Shahid is a dream-actor to work with. The way he  has transitioned smoothly from his royal role in Padmaavat to the workingclass Everyman inBatti Gul Meter Chalu is a  measure  of his versatility.Audiences won’t believe  it’s  the same  actor.”
