The rain seemed to have played spoilt sport when it came to hault the shooting of Sabbir Khan’s much-awaited Nikkama that stars Abhimanyu Dassani, Shilpa Shetty and would see the debut of sensational singer Shirley Sethia. An elaborate and exquisite day was placed in Madh Island with dancers and choreographers till the drizzle turned into a heavy downpour due to which the director had to call the day off.
With no shoot, the whole unit was seen jamming, talking films and playing sports to just enjoy each other’s company with an early pack up. The shoot then moved to the suburbs at Garden Retreat villa and Ellora Studios but rain followed the crew everywhere was stalled the shoot due to the heavy downpour.
“We had a week’s shooting left but nothing was in our hands since it was nature’s call. The rains did not stop the crew from working though, it was when some parts of the set started falling that we put the shoot on hault.”, said the director Sabbir Khan.
The crew will be heading to Lucknow soon to continue shooting the next schedule and will finish the remaining parts post coming back.
After directing hit films like Heropanti and Baaghi, Sabbir Khan is coming back with another action thriller. Produced by Sony Pictures and Sabbir Khan Films, Nikamma is scheduled to release some time in summer next year.
