Saif Ali Khan's tardiness apparently posed a security problem during 'Bullett Raja' shoot in Lucknow

Saif Ali Khan apparently made it a habit to come late on on the sets of Bullet Raja. During the film’s Lucknow schedule, his tardiness became a problem for the security folk and cops as well as the crowd of onlookers would keep waiting to get a glimpse of him.

A source says, “Saif was a huge attraction in Lucknow and whereever he went, huge crowds would gather often disrupting the shoot. It was a normal feature for Saif to come an hour and a half late for the shoot. As the film was shot on real locations, it was a nightmare for the security and police personnel as at any given time there would be atleast 1,000 to 2,000 people and only 100 odd cops to manage them.”

Adds the source, “There came a point when a senior official from the police department who was present at the shoot had to ask Saif to come on the sets on time as it becomes difficult for them to manage the crowd.” said an onlooker.

Saif remained unavailable for comment.
