Currently, shooting of Salman Khan’s next film and one of the most anticipated movies of next year, ‘Bharat’ has been proceeding at full throttle, but a roadblock was reportedly said to have hit the schedule. According to reports, farmers in Jodha village near Ludhiana were ‘upset’ with the cast and crew for recreating the Wagah Border in their fields as they themselves couldn’t access them because of the shoot. The makers had reportedly acquired 19 acres of the farms at Rs 80,000 per acre for the erection of the sets.
