Arshad Warsi and Jackky Bhagnani were recently shooting for their upcoming satire ‘Welcome To Karachi’ in England, where the director Ashish R Mohan has recreated parts of Karachi there, when they all got a scare from the Scotland Yard officers.

Talking to us about what actually happened, Jackky said, “We were shooting in Wales in our Talibani outfits with real guns in our hands in a quarry that was a private property.

Apart from Arshad sir and me, there were about 300 extras, all in the Talibani outfits, when suddenly we saw two orange choppers hovering above us.

We merrily continued to fire our guns assuming them to be just normal choppers that were flying over us, till we saw them pointing their snipers at us and we found ourselves surrounded in full filmi style by the Scotland Yard cars.

We learned that they had caught us with our guns and clothes on their satellite and mistook us to be a terrorist outfit.

Of course we clarified to them and showed them all our permissions and finally they laughed it off, but we were scared for those few moments when they gheraoed us.”
