Swine flu scare in Bollywood

>> Tuesday, August 11, 2009


The swine flu scare has taken over the entire world, and with the death toll in India rising nearly every day, Bollywood could hardly remain unaffected. Reports claim that Karan Johar has cancelled the Pune shooting schedule of his upcoming film Kurbaan as he doesn’t want to take any chances. The 180-member strong crew along with Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, who are the lead couple of the film, were to shoot in Pune for two days, but the schedule has been postponed as of now.

Meanwhile Hrithik Roshan asked his Kites co-star, Mexican actress Barbara Mori to fly from Mexico to India, since her home country is where the swine flu situation is much worse than it is here in India.According to reports, Bollywood has lost quite a few chances to hobnob with Hollywood stars thanks to the swine flu as some of them have cancelled plans of travelling to India for fear of catching the deadly flu en route or here.

Talk-show host Oprah Winfrey was to come to India (reportedly on A.R Rahman’s invitation), but she cancelled her plans a few weeks ago. Even Oscar-winner Julia Roberts is scheduled to come to the Capital to shoot the India phase of her film Eat, Pray, Love next month, but it remains to be seen whether she will go through with the plan.
