Two news cameramen sustained minor injuries and their camera equipment was damaged when unit members of the film, Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai and its hero Abhishek Bachchan reportedly attempted to stop them from taking photographs.
A first information report was later filed by the two cameramen -- Mustafa Qureshi and Umesh Puri -- who were given some first aid at the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, New Delhi. Many journalists and cameramen signed as witnesses at the Parliament Street Police Station.
According to witnesses, Abhishek -- son of megastar Amitabh Bachchan -- grabbed Umesh Puri from behind to prevent him from taking a photograph of Mustafa being beaten up, attracting a large number of crew members who beat him up and damaged his camera equipment.
Abhishek was whisked away in his car.
Abhishek and Jackie Shroff were shooting on the road between the North and South Blocks and at Vijay Chowk for Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai, directed by Goldie Behl. The film also stars Rani Mukherji and Sushmita Sen.
The trouble started when Mustafa wanted to click a photograph of a woman unit member trying to control the crowd with a wooden staff. He didn't take the photograph. But the unit members were not satisfied and wanted to snatch his camera, which resulted in the scuffle.
Ironically, Abhishek had dabbed on fake blood stains for a scene. They left their mark on Puri's shirt where the actor held him.
