The sound was interfering with the film's spot dubbing but the family refused to turn down the volume.

Saif Ali Khan had to face the music in Gods own country Literally

We dance only to our own tunes, that's what a Kerala family taught Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan.

Saif was in Fort Kochi, Kerala, on Thursday for the shooting of his new film "Chef", directed by Raja Krishna Menon. But though the crew had taken prior permission from the Cochin corporation before the start of the shoot, a family in the neighbourhood was in no mood to dance to their tunes. They preferred their own.

The family, which lives in a house-cum-Ayurveda spa, declined to reduce the volume of their music system which interfered with the spot dubbing of the film. They appear to have done this as a form of protest since the film shooting was disrupting their lives. 

The police was informed but though they tried to intervene, the music went on.

“In the ground floor of the building there was a spa and in the top floor the owner’s home. Though we tried to talk to them, the doors and windows were closed and music was playing inside at a high volume. They shooting had to stop as they were not able to do spot dubbing due to this noise,” Fort Kochi Sub Inspector S Dwijesh told The News Minute.

The officer also said that a case has been registered against the family for creating noise pollution.

“Though the full crew including the actor waited in the location for a long time, by afternoon they had to return to their hotel,” he said. 

In a video released by Mathrubhumi News, one can see an angry Saif losing his patience as the music continues unabated. At one point, he even claps along in frustration.

"Chef" is Raja Krishna Menon's second Bollywood project, after the superhit "Airlift". The movie is the Hindi remake of the Hollywood film by the same name and is about a professional chef who launches a food truck with his friend and son, after quitting his job at a fancy restaurant. 

The scenes in which Saif visits his home are to be shot in Fort Kochi but the actor probably did not expect this drum-roll at his arrival!
