When a snake came crawling to the sets of Star Plus and Rajan Shahi's Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai right on Hina Khan's birthday, the whole unit panicked. But the show's Producer Rajan Shahi saw the positive side of this too...
Says our source, "A snake came from the nearby woods of Film City. But it never entered the actual sets. Instead it was found where the generators are kept, and therefore did not pose any real security threats. However, the snake did attract a lot of curious onlookers."
When Rajan Shahi was contacted, this is what he had to say. "The snake had come to the sets to wish Hina a very happy birthday (smiles). We spotted it at evening time, and luckily, it did not enter the main shooting area. It was found in the area where the generators are kept."
The unit members acted responsibly and did not take matters into their own hands. Says Rajan, "They immediately called the forest officials, and the snake was taken away."
The producer interestingly is pepped about the whole incident. He says, "But I see it as a good omen, because I feel it came to wish Hina a happy birthday… I even told Hina that the snake had come just to wish her…"
Guess when you're a celebrity, you do get wishes from a lot of unexpected places!
