Their worst nightmare came true when the vintage set erected out in the seas by the crewmembers of an upcoming film caught fire in the middle of the night. Insiders say the set has been gutted.
The team of Sherlyn Chopra’s film, 'KamaSutra', was camping out at the Thoothukudi Old Harbour, in Tamil Nadu while their set created atop a large barge rested near the port. A little after midnight, the team was woken up by a commotion at hand, which later turned out to be a massive fire on board.
Says an onlooker, “Things aren’t going as planned for Rupesh Paul’s film. The makers have agreed to pay the owner of the boat for damages amounting to R 1.5 lakh.”
A unit member, on conditions of anonymity, says the film is most likely to suffer a setback due to the accident. “It will take a long time for the new set to come up,” adds the source.
