Emraan Hashmi and cast of Dibakar Banerjee’s political thriller had to give up their starry requirements at the shoot in Latur
Emraan Hashmi, who was recently in Latur shooting for Dibakar Banerjee’s political thriller Shanghai, starring Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin, was disappointed with the arrangements set up.
The unit was put up in the finest hotel in Latur, but it fell way below the expectations for the stars!
The place was like a common man’s home sans five-star frills and fancy fare. And not exactly comfortable for the actors especially on a long shooting schedule.
Emraan maintains, “At first we were all baffled by the arrangements made for our stay. But knowing that it was the best hotel around, we had no option but to stay there.”
Adding to that he says, “When I entered the washroom, it was another disappointment. It was back-to-basics for me, the bathrooms did not even have a shower, so we had to bathe with a mug and bucket only.”
The actor said he was reminded of his childhood days. “Such incidents happen rarely to us, but for a reason to leave you with memories to cherish from the past and to take it in your stride positively.”
Well Emraan, this is what happens when you try to find Shanghai in Latur. Isn’t it? Mid-Day
