Shahid Kapoor’s 'Haider' shoot faces protest in Kashmir
The shooting of Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Haider at University of Kashmir campus was halted after students protested and shouted slogans against the crew.

Actors Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor have been shooting Haider at some of the beautiful spots of Kashmir since the last two weeks, but the shoot hit a hurdle recently when the crew was preparing to film a sequence showing a fidayeen attack on a set created at the Naseem Bagh of the Kashmir university.

Reports say the set of an Indian army camp was created on the campus, but it didn’t go down well with the students. The film is set in the late 1990s and Vishal Bhardwaj was to shoot a scene showing a suicide attack on an Indian army camp.

However, the students objected to the shoot in the campus area. Reports say they also objected to the hoisting of an Indian flag on the sets. Some students were also angered by actor Irrfan Khan smoking a cigar on the campus.

The students shouted slogans and brought the shooting to a halt. Vishal Bhardwaj kept his composure and decided to call off the shoot and shift to a different location.

“This is no issue. We respect their sentiment. We should leave and shoot at other locales,” Bhardwaj is quoted to have said.

The 300-strong crew packed up for the day and moved to Dal Lake to shoot another sequence.

We hear Shahid Kapoor was not on the sets during the shoot in the university campus. He has taken time off from the shoot to promote his upcoming film 'R... Rajkumar'.

Haider is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet and is set entirely in Kashmir.
