Sanjay stops traffic in Cape Town

October 17, 2008 - Source: TIMES NEWS NETWORK
Men will always be boys around their toys. Giving new meaning to this expression is macho Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Gupta who is shooting his next film Acid Factory in South Africa with Danny Denzongpa, Manoj Bajpai, Aftab Shivdasani, Fardeen Khan, Dino Morea and Dia Mirza.

Sanjay — whose passion for fast cars and big bikes is legend — hired several choppers, 18 massive trucks, some snazzy sports cars like Lamborghinis and Ferraris, super bikes like Hayabusas and Harley Davidsons, SUVs, yachts and speedboats for a three-day schedule in Cape Town that extended into two weeks, he was having so much fun. “This film gives him a chance to indulge himself on screen,” revealed a source.

The filmmaker also hired a super Hollywood stunt team to choreograph an action sequence involving ATVs (four wheel motorcycles). While there were technical experts and other action wizards from South Africa and Hong Kong, including daredevil pilots and ace drivers from South Africa, assisting in the shooting. An on-line producer grumbled, “We had to block the highway each time we shot a scene... there was more traffic on the sets than on the road!”
