Call it occupational hazard. The temperatures on the sets of Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha have soared so high that the cast and the crew apparently have been feeling the heat, literally.
While many actors have taken to the social networking site to complain about the extreme weather condition, Ajay Devgn apparently fell ill and a doctor had to be summoned on the sets.
The second schedule is on at the Benazir grounds in the city and the daytime temperature stands at 40 degrees. Arjun Rampal was the first one among the cast to complain about the weather.
Last Wednesday, Arjun wrote, “Going to head back to Bhopal again today for the last schedule of Satyagraha, another 25 days. Wish me luck as the weather will be a challenge.”
Later Devgn tweeted, “Back in Bhopal and the heat is killing!” Amrita Rao tweeted yesterday, “Day 5 SATYAGRAHA 2nd schedule..and the microwave has jus turned into a bhatti ..”
A source from the sets says, “The stars are cooperating with the crew. We try to wrap up the shoot in time and head back to the hotel. A doctor had to be called in when Devgn complained of blood pressure problems. Touchwood it was not something major.”
Devgn’s spokesperson however denied the buzz of the actor falling ill.
