The Hungary shoot of John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha-starrrer 'Force 2' pushed ahead due to repercussions of the Syrian War refugee crisis

Curreuntly, John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha are in Budapest, Hungary, to shoot for Abhinay Deo's 'Force 2' — the ongoing schedule will wind up by October 22. However, pulling off a shoot there has been no mean task, thanks to the Middle East turmoil that has affected the country too.

Says a source, "The current environment of Budapest where the unit of the film is based has generated a political discussion with the Syrian War refugees attempting to enter the region through Hungary and Germany. The mahurat shoot was slated for September 6, but producer Vipul Shah asked the team to put it off until September 12."

The team had, however, fixed the location well in advance and did not want to change the venue. "Many Hollywood films have been shot in Budapest and the makers of this film had also zeroed in on an interesting place in the city to kick off the first schedule," adds the source.

The film's spokesperson confirms the news, saying, "The unit had to delay the mahurat by a few days due to political turmoil in the capital (of Hungary). The team has kicked off the shoot now and is running on schedule."
