The stage was set for a major action sequence of Ajay Devgn. The film in question was Bhuj. The venue, Film City. But Devgn had to take a U-turn back home just when he had almost reached. And at least, 350 people who had gathered to work on his set had to leave.
Reason? The Maharashtra government ordered the closure, says a source. "Every shoot in Film City was cancelled. The gates are shut and will not open till March 31," says a source.
Another source informs, "We could do nothing. The government has invoked Section 144 (prohibition of assembly of four or more people in one place). In such a scenario, we had to just pack up. And of course, we are not sure when this major scene will now be shot. But it is always better to be safe than sorry; it's good that the pack-up was ordered."
Bhuj: The Pride of India is a war film being directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya.

Coronavirus invasion is now spreading, with the first death reported in Mumbai few hours back. The Maharashtra government is said to be strongly contemplating to shut down public transport, which in turn will keep a large number of people in their respective homes.
