Downpours have left large parts of the Jammu and Kashmir region under water, and more than 200 residents have been evacuated as flash floods hit the area.

A film crew shooting scenes for new movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan was due to head to northern India at the start of this month (Apr15) for location work, but their planned 40-day trip has now been put back because of the unfolding disaster.

A source tells The Hindustan Times, "Initially, the film's team was set to leave Mumbai for J&K in the first week of April, but due to the floods, plans went a bit awry. Now, the cast and crew will leave around April 15 and start shooting immediately."

Bajrangi Bhaijaan stars controversial actor Salman Khan and charts the illicit love between a Muslim youth and his Hindu sweetheart.
