Vidya Balan Refuses To have Dinner With Minister, Shooting Stopped

There seems to be no end  to the problems concerning  Newton director Amit Masurkar’s  Sherni . Being  shot in  the forests of  Balaghat in  Madhya Pradesh  , shooting had  come to a halt earlier this month when actor VijayRaaz was accused   of  inppropriate  conduct.  Apparently the producers were given an ultimatum to either get rid  of  Vijay  or  Ms Balan would quit the film.

 No prizes for guessing which option they chose.

Now barely three weeks later , another  controversy has erupted. Reports  from Balaghat claim shooting has again  come to a standstill after Ms Balan refused to have dinner with a state minister  of MP. The Minister in question has denied the allegation.

 However when I touched base with a source associated wuth Sherni, that  person confirmed the incident. “I don’t know what exactly happened. But there was talk  about  a  minister’s request for a lunch and when the  request was  turned down, the  crew’s vehicles were  refused permission to enter  the  forest the  next day for shooting.”

The  source pleaded  not to be  disclosed , as everyone has been  given a strict gag order.

I  tried to contact  the director Amit Masurkar who  was  always eager to  talk  after his  first  film Newton  was  released. This time he maintained  a stony silence,  not denying the story.
