Delhi's Hazardous Air Quality Hits Bollywood, Shooting For Dostana 2 Called Off

After literally breathing a sigh of (relative) relief, the hazardous air has made a comeback to Delhi, NCR. Smog has been thickening for the past two days and it is affecting everyone- from the common man to Bollywood celebrities. Earlier it was Priyanka Chopra who faced problems due to Delhi pollution and now it is the Dostana 2 cast and crew that complained of not being able to breathe in the national capital.

According to reports, the shooting for Karan Johar's Dostana 2 was slated to take place in Delhi but was cancelled due to poor air quality. The entire cast and crew of the movie including Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan expressed concerns over the 'severe' pollution levels in the national capital and the shooting had to be called off. Reports further suggest that a thick blanket of smog made it extremely difficult for the movie's crew to continue shooting the metropolitan.

According to reports, "The cast and crew couldn’t breathe. Visibility was so low that the camera couldn’t capture the shots properly. It was a no-win situation. The team decided to disperse until the weather improves."

A few days ago, Kartik Aaryan shared some cute pictures of him seeking KJo's blessings. He completed the first round of shooting in Chandigarh.

The team of Dostana 2 is expected to resume filming in Delhi once the air condition improves, which honestly seems quite unlikely given the current situation. Meanwhile, Janhvi and Kartik visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar, right before the filming of the much-anticipated movie kicked off. Here are a few glimpses from the Dostana 2 diaries in Amritsar that you cannot miss!
