A little birdie on the set told us, "Saurav was out of Mumbai and had gone to his home town to attend to some important personal work when the production team called him yesterday evening, and asked him to be present on the set for an important sequence that had to be shot last night. They had even offered to reimburse his flight charge, and asked him to catch the next available flight and report on sets. Like a dutiful actor, Saurav did the same and got back for the shoot sequence. However, the actor was taken aback when he was informed that the shoot for the night got cancelled due to certain reasons. Saurav though upset, took it in his stride. Later this morning he was given a call time, which again got cancelled. And the actor was asked to come at 2 in the afternoon to the sets. Saurav however, came to the set but refused to budge out of his room till he was given his air fee compensation. The shoot came to a still and was resumed only after Saurav got his money back".
Though our source insists that Saurav did halt the shoot, Saurav has a different version to say.
When Telly Buzz called him he said, "I actually played a prank on one of my friends from the production house of whom i do not want to name. I always play such pranks and these things happens on our set.
All we can say is that this was an act that came from sheer frustration.
