The shoot of Nikhil Advani's 'Katti Batti' at RK Studio was recently disrupted, thanks to an uninvited guest on the sets. A snake found outside lead actress Kangna Ranaut's vanity van reportedly forced her to curl up inside for a few hours.

A source says, “Kangna was getting ready for a scene. She was not aware that the unit had found a snake right under her vanity van which was parked in a grassy area. One of her staff members informed her about the snake sighting and she got panicky. She gets scared even on hearing the reptile’s name. So, she just wasn’t willing to come out of the van and shoot.”

It is said that a crew member managed to throw the snake out of the sets and after much convincing, Kangna stepped out for her shot. Another source says, “Kangna kept thinking that the snake might return to the sets. But the production unit assured her that all precaution had been taken. She was still scared so one of the assistant directors eventually escorted her out of her van to the sets.”

Kangna’s spokesperson was not available for comment.
