The heat of Hampi at over 40 degrees of temperature was enough to trouble Akshay Sonakshi and the entire crew of the movie. But a song sequence could irk the local activists couldn’t have been anticipated.

The shooting of Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha’s “Rowdy Rathore” in Karnataka’s temple town of Hampi was disrupted after activists said the minimum number of local dancers had not been used.

Despite the heat factor the cast was busy dancing to the tunes of their director when suddenly some local activists hopped in and objected that ‘Rowdy Rathore’ production house, Sanjay Leela Bhansali Films, had not used a minimum of 30 percent of local dancers for shooting the song.

Activists also protested that if the permission was granted to shoot the song from Tuesday to Friday how the crew shot the song from Monday onwards.

“The entire film unit had no Kannada technicians and all of them, including the dancers, were brought from Mumbai. It is stipulated that 30 percent of local artists had to be used for the song shoot in Karnataka,” said Venkoba Naik, a local activist and freelance journalist in Hampi.

Naik further adds, “The archaeological department, looking after the famous Virupaksha Temple and nearby historical places, had given permission for song shoot only from Tuesday.”

Further the movie caused irk to Karnataka Film Workers’ Federation. Senior production manager Champakadhama Babu from the organization said, “The ‘Rowdy Rathore’ production unit has commissioned a local tourist guide called Vittala to help them out without taking the services of a local production manager. This is in gross violation of the accepted policy of the All India Cine Workers Organization.”

“A local production manager could have helped the production unit secure permissions for the shooting,” added Babu.

    It was not good for the Rowdy Rathore team to just barge into any heritage site and overlook all the rules and regulations.
