Vishal Bhardwaj and Ekta Kapoor‘s forthcoming Emraan Hashmi starerr film EK THI DAAYAN, as the title suggests, is a spooky take on witches, however director Kannan Iyer is in for a surprise as the set seems to have become a visiting ground for animals.

When Kannan began shooting for the film at Film City which is a thickly populated forest area the first time the sets were infested with reptiles from nowhere. The entire set had to be cleaned which meant that a lot of time was wasted and shoot was delayed.
The snakes were followed by a leopard, who made its way on to the sets and forest officials had to be called to finally trap the animal. This was not the first time. Another leopard was found for the second time when the crew members came on the sets early in the day. The shoot had to be cancelled till the ferocious animal was taken away.

To add to it a pack of monkeys also came on the sets and created a lot of ruckus. Finally extra security was called in to control them and get them out of the sets. The primates went away when shooed but came in again after some time delaying the shoot again.
Tanuj Garg, CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures, says, ”We had to call in extra security to get them out. But in a few minutes, they were back. There was some delay, but we couldn’t help it.”
