Sanjay Gupta had a harrowing time while shooting for his John Abraham-starrer Mumbai Saga.

Yesterday, Sanjay Gupta had a harrowing time while shooting for his John Abraham-starrer Mumbai Saga. The filmmaker tweeted that "a political leader and his cronies" arrived on the set and insisted "that he break the coconut before we start shooting. He also demanded photo-ops with the stars and cash for his 'permission' (sic)." Gupta added, "The cops arrived only to shut us down. Fortunately, we had finished filming the main scene. We packed up and left. Don't think I'll ever shoot in that place again. Sad (sic)." Gupta did not reveal the location or the identity of the politician.
