TENSION recently prevailed on the sets of Nanban, a Vijay-Srikanth-Jiiva starrer directed by Shankar, after a mob reportedly entered the shooting spot and ransacked set properties. “Things came to control only after the police were called,” said a source.
“When the cast and crew were shooting on a college premises near Chennai, a gang of local residents came to the spot to have a glimpse of Vijay and others. The actor and director obliged to their demands and spent some time with them.
“But they refused to vacate the place and did not allow the crew to resume shooting. This resulted in a verbal duel, which turned into a messy fight. The mob damaged some of the set property.
“As things went out of control, the police were called in. They immediately rushed to the spot and pacified the locals. An extra cover of protection is now being given to the Nanban shoot.”
