Director Siddharth Anand is ensuring tight security during the Abu Dhabi schedule of Bang Bang
Not a long time ago, Farah Khan banned mobile phones on the sets of her upcoming film, Happy New Year, which stars Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah. And now it looks like filmmaker, Siddharth Anand is following Farah’s footsteps.
From what we hear, Anand is ensuring tight security during the Abu Dhabi schedule of Bang Bang, which stars Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles. He has not just called for close to 30 security personnel on the set, but has also requested crew members to deposit their mobile phones at a counter before coming for the shoot.
A source close to the development said: “It is very difficult to control information during outdoor shoots. Siddharth is currently filming some of the most crucial scenes from the film in Abu Dhabi. Some of these scenes are part of the thrill in ‘Bang Bang’ and thus, Siddharth had no option but to ramp up security.”
We also hear that the security personnel are maintaining strict vigil for people with mobile phones. “No mobile phones are allowed on set. A counter has been created where the crew are depositing their phones and taking it back after the day’s shoot,” the source further added.
