Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film ‘Bhoomi’ is currently being shot and it appears crowds who were keen to see a glimpse of the actor eventually caused the shoot to stall near Agra.

A source from the production unit is quoted by Mid-Day, “We were shooting at Kaushal Bajpai house in a village called Bamrauli Katara near Agra on Thursday. It was a night shoot and we had more than adequate security in place. Apart from Sanjay sir’s bodyguards, the state police force had deployed their men on location.”

It seems it was word of mouth that caused the crowd to increase and people got a little bit difficult to handle despite the security, “We didn’t realise when the crowd wildly multiplied, with some turning unruly. It wasn’t safe for Sanjay sir to come out for the shoot. Aditi (Rao Hydari, who plays his daughter) was also part of the scene. We waited for hours for the crowd to thin out before calling off the shoot”.

The film is being directed by Omung Kumar and he said, “We were all set to roll, but thousands of people just took over our set. We couldn’t manage the crowd; it was impossible to shoot that night. It was in the best interest of everyone to cancel it.”
