The cast and crew of Prem Amar 2 by Raj Chakraborty had to stop their shooting midway and return from Bangladesh. The film is the sequel of Prem Amar (2010), starring Soham Chakraborty and Payel Sarkar. Adrit Roy and Puja Cherry, who were previously seen together in Chakraborty’s Noor Jahan, will play the lead roles in the film.
The unit has reportedly finished shooting in India and went to Bangladesh to complete the shooting in Sylhet for 12 days. Their shooting was halted midway as there was more paperwork left to be done. The unit had to come back as it was not possible for the producers, Chakraborty and Abdul Aziz, to keep the entire cast and crew in the foreign country.
“We had all permissions on us and got a work visa. We have followed the rulebook in terms of taking actors and technicians. Accordingly, the unit started shooting in Sylhet last week. Suddenly, the shoot was halted, as we were told that some paperwork was left to be done. That was not possible in the next two days and we would have ended up losing a lot of money since the entire team was stationed there. So we decided to come back," Chakraborty told The Times Of India.
Aziz, on the other hand, commented, “The team needed to take permission from the ministry of cultural affairs in Bangladesh. When they were asked to submit it, they failed. The shoot was started before they got permission.”
“Every rule was followed,” countered Chakraborty and assured, “I am hopeful that this permission will also be given to us, but right now we don’t know what the schedule will be like.”
