Vidya Balan Refuses To Have Dinner With Minister, Shooting Stopped; Here's What We Know So Far - EXCLUSIVE
There seems to be no end to the problems concerning Newton director Amit Masurkar’s Sherni. Being  shot in the forests of Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh, shooting had  come to a halt earlier this month when actor Vijay Raaz was accused of inappropriate conduct. Apparently the producers were given an ultimatum to either get rid  of  Vijay or Ms Balan would quit the film. No prizes for guessing which option they chose.

Now barely three weeks later, another controversy has erupted. Reports  from Balaghat claim shooting has again come to a standstill after Ms Balan refused to have dinner with a state minister of MP. The Minister in question has denied the allegation.

 However when I touched base with a source associated with Sherni, that person confirmed the incident. “I don’t know what exactly happened. But there was talk  about  a  minister’s request for a lunch and when the  request was  turned down, the crew’s vehicles were  refused permission to enter  the  forest the  next day for shooting.”

The  source pleaded  not to be  disclosed , as everyone has been  given a strict gag order.

I  tried to contact  the director Amit Masurkar who  was  always eager to  talk  after his  first  film Newton  was  released. This time he maintained  a stony silence,  not denying the story.
