Remember Ranbir Kapoor's photographs from the sets of Sanjay Dutt's biopic taken on Wednesday? He was actually shooting at Sanjay Dutt's residence in Pali Hill, Imperial Heights. The shooting was stalled for some good 40 minutes after angry residents of the building protested against a huge traffic jam formed as a result of the film crew being stationed in front of the building, reported Mumbai Mirror. As soon as the commotion started, Ranbir went inside the building while director Rajkumar Hirani apologised and asked for 10 minutes to wrap, reported Mumbai Mirror. The crew had reportedly begun shooting at Imperial Heights from 6am, three hours after which some of the residents reportedly parked their cars in between the shooting spots in protest. According to Mumbai Mirror, Rajkumar Hirani's crew also littered heavily, which the director promised to clear up.
The traffic mess was caused at a time when Ranbir was supposed to shoot a sequence in which he was to drive in to Mr Dutt's building in a Ferrari, reported Mumbai Mirror. "As a result, the whole road was blocked. This obviously frayed the nerves. Also, the entire unit had littered the road. They threw paper plates, cups and other garbage everywhere. We were not even aware that such a shoot was to take place here. The film unit did not inform the residents' association nor did they seek any permission from us," Mumbai Mirror quoted secretary of Pali Hill Residents' Association Madhu Poplai as saying.
The rest of the shooting was expected to take place inside Sanjay Dutt's residence - a set has been erected inside Imperial Heights pictures of which went viral on social media yesterday. "There was a problem at Pali Hill and Hirani himself had to come out to apologise to the people. After the shoot, we made sure that all garbage was picked up and dumped at a proper place," Mumbai Mirror quoted a crew member as saying.
Following Mr Hirani's apology, the residents of Imperial Heights were pacified and allowed the crew to complete the outdoor shoot in peace, reported Mumbai Mirror.
Meanwhile, pictures of Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt sent the Internet into a meltdown and Twitter particularly could not tell the two actors apart. Ranbir has undergone massive physical transformation for his part in the film and put on 13 kilos.
