Mumbai: Meera Chopra, the actress of South Cinema and cousin of Priyanka Chopra, survived getting stuck in trouble. Actually, Meera Chopra is in Varanasi these days due to the shooting of her film with Tanuj Virwani. Where, these two stars stayed in different hotels, but more than 150 people including the director, cameraman of their film were taken hostage in Varanasi hotel. Because, Meera Chopra and Tanuj Virwani stayed in separate hotels, both of them survived, but 150 members of the film, including their co-actor Freddy Daruwala, were taken hostage in a hotel in Varanasi.
Actually, the film’s producer Ilyas Guddu said that he did not have the necessary funds to give to the hotel, after which he is not allowed to move out by the hotel until he pays the hotel dues. The units of the film were staying in four major hotels of Varanasi.
Ilyas Guddu had reached Varanasi for the shooting of a film titled ‘Guddu Ki Girlfriend’ along with Meera Chopra and Tanuj Virwani. Where, he had booked four big hotels in the city for the stay of the film’s unit. Where, in case of non-payment of rent, they have been taken hostage. Senior actor Sukesh Anand, including the film’s director and cameraman, was also stranded in the hotel along with the film’s team, who managed to leave the hotel shortly before.
ETimes In a conversation with Sukesh Anand said- ‘I don’t think I will be able to complete the film now. It was a very difficult time for us. The hotel did not let us go earlier. I contacted Nupur Alankar (a well-known actress from the TV industry who is also known for her social service) and she tweeted in this regard tagging Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ji.
He further said- ‘We had not even complained to the local police before this. Nupur handled this matter very intelligently. However, eight people are still not allowed to leave the hotel premises. However, this is also okay, because these are the same people who caused this whole problem. But, why were we actors and technicians held hostage? We were not at all responsible for running out of money with the producer.
