Mahesh Bhatt was much worried for Pooja Bhatt as the filmmaker is in Phuket for the next schedule of her shooting. He said that the giant waves might hit the region where Pooja is currently shooting.
He posted on a micro blogging site, “Pooja is in Phuket scouting locations for Jism 2. She just called saying that the Tsunami is about to hit Phuket. The Occean is receding.”
Dino Morea, the co-producer of the movie, also went with Pooja to Phuket along with the adult star Sunny Leone. Dino wrote on Twitter,“In Phuket at the moment, and a serious Tsunami warning. Been advised to stay on higher ground for the next few hours.”
If Mahesh and Dino shared their experienced, how can Pooja be lagged behind! Even she posted, “Been asked to stay put at a location short-listed for Jism2 in Phuket. All we can do is wait for the ocean to recede.”
The earthquake was originally reported as 8.9 magnitude but was later revised down to 8.6 by the USGS. Even strong aftershocks were reported in Phuket.

Nevertheless the tsunami alert that could have affected 28 countries after the massive earthquake was later called off by the officials. Jakarta was said to shake for as long as five minutes.
Dino then tweeted, “All well now folks! Tsunami alert called off! Roads re-opened, music levels raised, bubbly being poured. Hallelujah/Praise the lord!”
