During the shooting of an action scene of the film JUGAAD, the production house required a large crowd for the scene. Many people were needed to surround the actor Manoj Bajpai. The crowd was needed to be almost a crowd of 80 to 100 people but due to some problem the production executive could manage to get only 15 to 20 people. They had to shoot the scene on same day since all the other technical arrangements were made to perfection.
Now to arrange the crowd, one of the production assistants came up with the bright idea. They went and announced in the nearby market that Priyanka Chopra is coming for the shoot. And WOW. Within half an hour they had a crowd of more then 150 people thronging the ground to get a glimpse their favourite actress. To add to the woes of unit hands, a big crowd of workers from a nearby factory also joined to watch the shoot. ''It was such a funny scene. Instead of shooting unit people were busy trying to control the unruly crowd and director Anand Kumar was shouting his lungs out for all the chaos. This incident became so hilarious that we had to stop shoot for quite some time to bring normalcy back on the floors,'' laughs Manoj Bajpai while recalling the entire scene. Eventually Manoj had to take the loudspeaker in his hand and tell everybody that Priyanka is unable to reach. Within minutes the crowd had reduced to a normal 70-80 people and JUGAAD team could finish the shoot.
