- Planet Bollywood Special Correspondant           Let us know what you think about this story

The team of Bejoy Nambiar's 'Shaitan' met with a stroke of unfortunate luck while shooting in the by-lanes of Mohommad Ali Road - A scene in the film required lead actors Gulshan Devaiah, Neil Bhoopalam and Shiv Pandit to sport a Burkha and walk down the Muslim dominated lane.However this didn't go down well with the locals who were aghast with men donning a burqa-attire religiously worn by Muslim women.

Being highly offended the team was asked to stop shooting by the residents and that's when director Bejoy stepped in to explain that they were shooting for a film titled 'Shaitan'.

Though meaning to pacify, the name of the film itself upset the crowds even more and the shoot had to be cancelled for the day before they met with anymore trouble. The scene was shot over 3 schedules with strategically placed cameras in order to avoid any hassles from the locals- Confirms Bejoy "Yes we did encounter a lot of trouble while shooting at Mohommad Ali Road- We finally captured the scenes successfully on the quiet after 3 hectic schedules and hidden cameras"

Starring Rajeev Khandelwal, Kalki Koechlin , Neil Bhoopalam,Shiv Pandit, Kirti Kulhari and Gulshan Devaiah -'Shaitan' comes to a theatre near you this 10th June, 2011.
