Filmmaker Karan Johar does not leave anything to chance when his projects come in contact with inquisitive paparazzi.
Recently, while filming Ae Dil Hai Mushkil KJo asked the film team to report to the set at 3 in the morning for a song shoot last week. Reason? He didn’t want the paparazzi to catch a glimpse of the actors in their character’s garb.
A source said, “Karan shot a major chunk of the film in London, and has revealed little about the actors’ look and their characters. He has been posting only generic pictures from the set on social media. Recently, when he shot a song with Ranbir and Anushka at Mehboob Studios, he called for extra security.”
After the song was filmed, KJo wanted to do a photoshoot with the lead pair. As per initial discussion, the shoot was scheduled to be held in the morning, but he decided against it, added the source.
“He felt the paparazzi might end up clicking the actors’ pictures and their look would be leaked. So, he chose to do it during odd hours, when there was less risk. He called the actors and crew at 3am. The shoot was completed without a hitch and the media didn’t get a whiff of it,” the source said.
But, a spokesperson said, “The shoot took place between 12pm and 7pm. – CINEWS
