Adbhut’s shoot put on hold due to heavy rains
The supernatural thriller stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Diana Penty, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Rohan Mehra
The shoot of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Diana Penty, Shreya Dhanwanthary, and Rohan Mehra starrer Adbhut has been put on hold.
The Sabbir Khan directorial kicked off in the first week of October following protocols in Shimla. The supernatural thriller had planned an extensive shoot in the mountains. The team had wrapped the weeklong schedule in Shimla and had just moved to Manali. However, due to uncertainties in weather and unexpected heavy rainfall, the team had to halt their shoot.
A unit hand informs, “The shoot has been halted for the next two days in Manali after the weather department further predicted heavy rains for 48 hours.”
Director Sabbir Khan confirms, “It was a completely unexpected change in weather, and shooting outside in the rains with a crew of this size is risky. Rains in hills are also known to cause landslides and I didn’t want to put my team in any sort of physical danger. We will make up for the lost time in the days to come. For now, it’s heartwarming to see them enjoy it together. These are the memories that stay after the film is over."
Abdhut is produced by Sony Pictures Films India and Sabbir Khan Films. This is Sabbir’s second outing with the studio post Nikamma starring Abhimanyu, Shirley Sethia, and Shilpa Shetty.
