After Sonam Kapoor was struck down with swine flu over the weekend, Salman Khan and other crew members shooting for Rajshri’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ are being tested for the same illness.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “After Sonam left, the entire unit was tested. We’re waiting for the results and have been told to wear protective masks.”
It seems other cast members including Khan are not taking risks whilst shooting for the film in Rajkot. Following the orders of the Maharani of Gondal, Kumud Kumari, whose home and gardens they’re shooting in, they’ve taken precautions, “The royals have a homemade remedy for the virus which involves sniffing a mixture of camphor and cardamom. Ayurvedic drinks and homeopathic pills are being served on the sets.”
Swara Bhaskar who plays Salman’s sister in the film, confirmed this, told Mumbai Mirror, “Shooting is on in full swing. We rehearse with masks on and only take them off when facing the camera.” The schedule wraps up on March 4 after which the cast and crew will head back to Mumbai for the final schedule.
