When the Mandi district administration approached the film crew stranded in Chhatru, the members refused to leave and gave in writing that they are staying back “at their own risk”.

“We have packed up our luggage keeping in view the weather here. We will leave for Manali as soon as a road in Gramphu area is repaired. If we face any difficulty, the administration will not be responsible for it,” Ganga Ram, a member of the film crew, wrote in a note to the police.
“The administration has been asking us to leave Chhatru for the last four days. We will be fully responsible if any untoward incident happens during our stay,” the written statement said.
