The NCB seized Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan on October 3 after officials stormed a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. The actor was slated to leave for Spain to film Pathan around the same time. But since then, everything has been put on hold. SRK was also filming director Atlee’s next film, which has been put back as well.
Before deciding on his next course of action, the actor is awaiting the outcome of his son’s bail appeal on October 20. When Aryan was imprisoned, Shah Rukh was also filming for Atlee’s film, tentatively titled Jawaan.
The source reveals, “Director Siddharth Anand had left for Spain on October 2. However, he returned to India after the Aryan Khan case. The makers were there to shoot two songs in Mallorca, Cadiz and Vejer de la Frontera. Pathan was the first film to be shot at those three locations. On other hand, Atlee is proceeding with Shah Rukh’s duplicate Prashant Walde for the long shots and the over the shoulder sequences to ensure that the dates of the other artistes are being utilised.”
Tiger 3 has been harmed as a result of Pathan’s delay. Both films are produced by Yash Raj Films and are linked in some way. While Salman makes a cameo appearance in Pathan, Shah Rukh is set to appear in Tiger 3. The source adds, “Salman is closely following up on Aryan’s case. The actor has visited SRK on multiple occasions and is concerned about Aryan’s well-being. He is constantly by Shah Rukh’s side. Salman is also busy over the weekends shooting for Bigg Boss 15. The actor, therefore, could not attend the ongoing rehearsals of Tiger 3 last week. Katrina, who has some hand combat action sequences. has been rehearsing.”
The actor, along with Emraan Hashmi, is anticipated to join the rehearsals in the coming days, according to the source. All three stars will begin filming for the film in Mumbai later this month, says the source.
Three sets were erected at Yash Raj Studios, while another set is already up in Goregaon. In one of the three sets, director Maneesh Sharma is reproducing some middle eastern type structures, while the other set will depict Pakistan. On the sets, the Pakistani spy agency’s offices have been prepared for this.
