Shiney’s Uneasy Return Shoot

shiney-ahujaShiney Ahuja’s on a horrific footing. Quite literally…as Ahuja, rape accused presently out on bail, was back in Mumbai to complete filming for his horror flick ‘Shunya’. The Bombay High Court has permitted Ahuja to shoot in Mumbai till June 30, else he is to stay in Delhi and enter city limits for the hearings of his case.Puja Bedi is a relieved producer and is frantically trying to wrap up the filming with actress Sayali Bhagat, former beauty pageant winner.

Incidentally, ‘Shunya’ is almost 80 per cent complete; a recent shooting schedule in Lokhandwala (suburban Mumbai) has been accomplished and a Panvel schedule is on the anvil.

Great care and caution has been exercised so that the media does not get a whiff of where Ahuja is filming. On the shooting front, its been an uneasy experience for the actor, despite best efforts from the cast and crew to make him feel at ease on the sets.

Says a close source, “There are stares and hushed whispers when Shiney is on the sets, and all of that disturbs Shiney greatly. Shiney, generally, avoids looking at people and returns to his vanity van as soon as the shot has been canned. He tries hard to mingle with the unit members, though he does maintain a safe distance from his co stars. And although they do talk there is a certain awkwardness in the air.”

Apart from ‘Shunya’, Ahuja has a clutch of flicks in the pipeline: ‘Har Pal’, his Preity Zinta starrer helmed by Jahnu Barua; ‘Chaloo Movie’; ‘Accident’; ‘Take Two’ and ‘Migration’.

‘Accident’, his Soha Ali starrer has been the only movie which Ahuja has filmed for since he was released on bail. Soha, however, refused to can sequences with him, and reportedly their portions were shot separately.

Sayali, however, is not keen on nixing her chances at cinedom. Close insiders assert that her mother insists on remaing present on the sets all the time!
