When the 'Heroes' needed rescuing!

Heroes The actors of this Friday's release Heroes were caught in a storm while shooting the film at the height of more than 16,000 ft above the sea level.

They may be playing heroes for the camera, but the actors of 'Heroes' needed to be rescued by the real heroes, that is the Indian Army, while shooting in the inhospitable climes of Ladakh.

The shooting unit checked in at hotels in Opangog. And what amazing hotels they were! There was no water supply, no electricity and very few dishes for meals. After two weeks of shooting there, the unit moved to further heights at a place called More Plains, where there were no hotels, no villages and no trees either. Just a vast and desolate stretch of barren land.

While shooting there, the unit faced an unusual problem. Since there were no toilets there, the members of the shooting team (including actors) had to relieve themselves in the open. But then, there were no trees or bushes to hide behind either. So they had to use huge Bisleri bottles to hide behind while heeding nature's call.

But then, one day nature played havoc. After wrapping the day's shoot in the evening, the shooting unit got stuck in a snow-storm. The drive-back to the hotel was four hours long. So the entire crew was stuck and had no other option but to look for some shelter nearby.

Luckily, they found an army transit camp a few kilometers away. The unit went to the camp and Sohail Khan spoke with the Wing Commander who immediately agreed to give shelter to the unit.

The doors of three dormitories were opened for the crew. Not just this, the army personnel even made some dal and rice for the unit.

Director Samir Karnik says that incident convinced him about the theme of his film 'Heroes', which is about those people who sacrifice their lives for the sake of nation.

The movie stars Salman Khan , Preity Zinta , Bobby Deol , Sunny Deol , Sohail Khan, Vatsal Seth , Riya Sen , Mithun Chakraborty and Dino Morea .
