After Aryan Khan was arrested, it was reported that all projects of Shah Rukh Khan have been kept on hold. But his body double, Prashant Walde, who has been working with the superstar for the last 15 years, has confirmed that though the actor is not going to the sets of his projects, the shoot of those projects has not stopped.
Walde said that he has been compensating for SRK’s projects for a couple of weeks now by continuously shooting. At the moment, Prashant Walde is shooting portions of Shah Rukh Khan’s film with Atlee, and some other commercial advertisements.
“The shooting of the film with Atlee is going as per plan, and other advertisements work as well. I’ve been shooting these projects for the last 20 days, and that hasn’t changed after recent developments,” Walde confirmed to Hindustan Times, adding that the only change is that Khan isn’t coming to the set these days. The stand-in actor is also ready to jet off to Spain for the next schedule of Pathan.
He said, “Our work has resumed after so many difficulties after the lockdown. For Shah Rukh sir, the show must go on.” He also added that whole team from South is already here for the shoot of the film. “Aur unke kaam ke saath lakhon logon ka rozgaar juda hai, aur yeh SRK sir ko bhi maloom hai. That’s why he hasn’t asked us to stop working, isiliye kaam phele jaise chalu hai,” told Prashant Walde.
While talking about everyone’s mood on the set, he said, “We’re all trying to be professional, but we’re disturbed from inside ke achha kaam chal raha tha, SRK sir ke saath yeh kya problem ho gayi. But for us, he’s always right, and we trust him completely because we’re able to survive today only because of him.”
Wadle further added, “We all have got our visas, but don’t know when we will fly out, and whether SRK sir will join us or not. In fact, I don’t know when he’ll get back on the set. But, we’re sure that whatever he decides, will be best for all of us.”
