Rannvijay Singh film Mango: Shooting cancelled after bouncers attack doctor

The movie’s shoot in Panaji was stalled by the mayor after the film crew ‘illegally’ stopped city dwellers from entering the location

Civic authorities in Panaji on Tuesday cancelled the shooting of upcoming Bollywood film Mango after security personnel attached to the film unit roughed up a well-known city doctor on a public road. MTV veejay-turned-actor Rannvijay Singh, who is part of the film, was present onsite when the incident occurred.

Surendra Furtado, Mayor of Panaji, told reporters that the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) ordered the shoot cancelled. “This cannot be allowed to happen. A dilm crew cannot assault respected city dwellers like this. The permission given to them (film crew) was only for a small area. But they have illegally blocked other roads too,” Furtado said.

The incident occurred when Oscar Rebello, a well-known medical professional, was crossing the road behind his clinic located near the city market, where ‘bouncers’ accompanying the film crew had illegally cordoned off the road, asked him to stay put. When Oscar still went on and crossed the road, four bouncers started roughing him up and threatening him. “I am lodging a complaint at the Panaji police station. This attitude is unacceptable,” Rebello said.

The film producers had been charged Rs 30,000 by the state government towards permissions for a three-day shoot scheduled in Panaji. But Furtado now says that the city corporation would take a call on whether the film crew would be allowed to shoot in Panaji at all following the assault.
