An entire set erected in Mumbai for Mausam had to be dismantled, causing the loss

Sonam Kapoor, the Masakalli gal from Delhi 6, is feeling much better now after her bout of typhoid. But her illness and her consequent inability to be present on the shoot of Mausam has caused a big hole in the producer’s pocket. The loss is rumoured to be around Rs 75 lakh.
An entire set for Mausam, directed by Shahid Kapoor’s father, Pankaj Kapur, had to be dismantled in Mumbai recently. “Some romantic scenes of Sonam and Shahid had to be shot.
But since Sonam went on sick leave for a long period, we had no option but to cancel the October shoot. The dismantling of the set caused a big loss to the producer,” says a source.
Adds the source, “The next schedule will now be shot in Gwalior. Sonam might be required but only for a few scenes.”
When contacted, Talwar confirmed, “Sonam couldn’t shoot since she was down with typhoid. We had to dismantle a set in Mumbai and lost Rs 75 lakh. But it’s okay. What is important is that Sonam is better now. No problem about the money. We are insured on that, we’ll recover that at a later date.
And of course, we’ll shoot the Mumbai schedule very soon, but that’s only after we complete the Gwalior shoot.”
