|Asin and Salman in Srilanka as guests of Rajapakse|
Asin and Salman Khan are already in the FEFSI forbidden land(Srilanka) for their Hindi film ‘Ready’ from Wednesday onwards shooting at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo . Also Salman Khan and Asin’s security are said to be monitored directly by the Srilankan President’s office as they had gone to the island as the ‘guests of Rajapakse’ and are now being reportedly provided ‘Z’ category security by the government.
The South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC) had threatened South Indian actress Asin Thottumkal to stop her movies being distributed if she went ahead with the shooting of her movie in Sri Lanka. Unmindful of the threats by the SIFCC, Mr. Khan and the film’s producers decided to go ahead with the shoot in Sri Lanka. The movie “Ready” was originally to have been shot in Mauritius.
IIFA-projects associate vice president Shefali Munshi said that on behalf of President Mahinda Rajapaksa they applauded Salman Khan and movie team of “Ready” for shooting the movie in Sri Lanka. She also thanked the Sri Lankan government for its support and hospitality.
After returning from IIFA even Salman Khan changed the location of his film to Sri Lanka cancelling the already decided Mauritius. Salman and Asin will be shooting for a month at various locations in Sri Lanka including Colombo and Kandy.
