Mumbai: Shooting of film ‘Sherni‘, starring Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, was allegedly stopped in Madhya Pradesh after she turned down a state minister’s dinner invitation.
Balan has been in the state for the past few weeks for the shooting of some scenes in the forest area.
According to reports, the production team’s car of the Sherni were allegedly stopped from entering a forest for shooting, just a day after the actress refused MP forest minister Vijay Shah’s invitation for dinner.
District Forest Officer (DFO) of Balaghat stopped the vehicles of the team from entering the forest, saying only two vehicles are allowed.
However, as the matter grew, Shah refused the allegations and said that it was he who refused the request.
“I was there (Balaghat) on request from those who took permission for the shoot and requested me for lunch or dinner. I said not possible now, I will meet them when I go to Maharashtra. Lunch or dinner was cancelled, the shoot wasn’t,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
