Even after the government has allowed it to resume shooting with necessary precautions, the makers can’t travel abroad due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Some are considering VFX as the last resort and setting up sets in local studios.
Shah Rukh Khan’s immigration social drama with Rajkumar Hirani was supposed to gear up in Canada. However, the team didn’t get permission for the shoot due to the pandemic.
Now as per the reports, the film may get delayed and hopefully go on floor post October.
According to the latest reports SRK is considering Siddharth Anand’s actioner before the immigration drama.
The film is produced by YRF and as per the reports the makers will officially announce the project on Yash Chopra’s birth anniversary on September 27.
“Given the current global crisis, Hirani’s team could not procure the permission to shoot in Canada. So, the director will have to kick off the shoot at a later date. In the meantime, Shah Rukh is considering returning to the big screen with Siddharth’s action-drama. After the raging success of War, Yash Raj Films is keen that he helm another tentpole movie. The film will be announced on Yash Chopra’s birth anniversary, September 27, and the superstar is expected to begin shooting in October tentatively,” the source told a daily.
