Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty who was also shooting for the film in Mussoorie collapsed on the sets due to a bout of food poisoning. Therefore, the shooting of the film came to an abrupt halt. Reportedly, Mithun was filming an outdoor scene. The next morning, the actor ensured that he made up for the backlog.
