The organisation alleged that Jha's unit had ordered the patients to leave the hospital to facilitate the shooting of a scene. Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangthan Convenor Abdul Jabbar said that the shoot was cancelled on Friday after a number of patients at the Bhopal Memorial Hospital and Research Centre complained of being asked to allegedly leave the facility to facilitate shooting.

Jabbar, who led the protest, also spoke to former Chief Justice of India, A M Ahmadi who is the Chairman of the hospital, following which the filming, proposed to be carried out in the operation theatre and the critical Care Unit, was stopped.

"There was no way in which the film could be shot at the hospital," the Convernor said, adding he was surprised that the hospital administration had given permission for shooting.
Jabbar said that according to his information, the shoot was to be held for two days beginning yesterday showing a sequence where Bollywood actor Nana Patekar suffers a heart attack and is being treated at the hospital.

The film, which stars Bollywood actors Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor, Ajay Devgan and Arjun Rampal in lead roles, centres around the contemporary electoral politics in India.
