The Maharashtra forest department has asked Film City to stop shooting at outdoor sites for the next eight days till the leopard suspected of attacking five children in the area is trapped.

Film City is located on the boundary of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP), which has a leopard population of over 20.

Surprisingly, despite the state forest department’s orders, there are still few actors who are shooting for their serials, some indoor and some outdoors as well.

While talking to a leading newspaper actor Kanwar Dhillon, who stars in the show Ek Aastha Aisi Bhee, said, “Recently, there have been few leopard attacks in Film City but shooting hasn’t stopped. We have been shooting non-stop but I have to say that since there have been one too many incidents of these attacks in the past two weeks, people are a bit scared to roam around freely in the vicinity after sunset.”

Jay Soni, an actor in TV show Bhaag Bakool Bhaag, said, “We are absolutely safe here in the Film City and have been shooting without any issue. Of course the news of leopard attacks has spread but not resulted in halting any shoot. It has been a normal day on the sets for all of us.”

Gulki Joshi, who has been shooting for Ek Shringaar Swabhimaan, said, “My set is the last set in the Film City beyond which there are barricades. I heard that shooting of some shows have been halted but I have been shooting just fine since morning. There has been no problem for us yet.”|
