TV9 - "Rowdy Rathore" Shooting Disrupted in Hampi....!

How the lead actors and the rest of the crew of Rowdy Rathore disrupted tourist activity at Hampi with 20-odd vehicles vrooming into the core zone of Hampi's UNESCO world heritage site, where even two-wheelers are strictly prohibited.

Not surprisingly, just a day later on Tuesday, the crew, including Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha had to beat a hasty retreat from Hampi, courtesy their total disregard for norms.After hearing what the cast and crew had done, Hampi World Heritage Area Management Authority (HWHAMA) officials rushed to the spot early on Tuesday and put an end to the shooting of Rowdy Rathore.

"Their licence has been cancelled. We asked them to pack up for violating rules that were conditions for granting permission. It was the call of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and we enforced it," said D R Ashok, Commissioner, HWHAMA to Mirror. He made it a point to add, "We are also making certain amendments to the rules to ensure such things are not repeated."

Prabhu Deva and the crew of Rowdy Rathore, who were in Hampi since Monday, ended up drawing flak on the very first day. Officials who rushed to the site found the crew had sought permission from the ASI to shoot for three days but had not informed HWHAMA, the body that oversees affairs at Hampi. Henceforth, film crews will not only have to adhere to the dos and don'ts put down by UNESCO, ASI and HWHAMA, obtaining a no-objection certificate from HWHAMA will be mandatory, said Ashok.

"This will help us prevent such incidents in future besides addressing law and order issues, protection to the crew and conservation of monuments," he said.

Meanwhile, Prabhu Deva who was earlier so vocal, remained unavailable for comment.
