Beirut's climate has left almost everyone on the sets of Kabir Khan's film 'Phantom' starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif reeling...

The unit of Kabir Khan’s untitled film starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif is said to be facing severe health issues because of the unbearably hot weather in Beirut.

The schedule of film which went on floors in the third week of October is now struggling to complete the schedule. “We were shooting for two weeks and it was pretty tough to shoot in the mornings because of the weather. Since we mostly had morning schedules, by evening, we would feel terribly exhausted due to the heat. We would try and consume as much liquid as possible but even then we had to request Kabir to wrap up the scenes as soon as possible,” says an unit member.

It must have been strenous for Katrina, who is just about recuperating from viral flu.

“When Kat arrived in the country, she looked a bit glum but she insisted we work on time so that we can return to India for Diwali. Fortunately, the temperatures started falling in the last few days,” says the source.

Producer Sajid Nadiadwala was unavailable for comment while Katrina’s spokesperson confirmed the story.
