Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani are finally working together on a social comedy after several efforts over the last two decades. The trio plans to begin filming by Summer 2022, with numerous schedules spread out over an 8- to 9-month period. While the pre-production work is in full flow, it is now has learned exclusively that the filmmakers are in talks with Vicky Kaushal to play a key role in this immigration drama.
“Vicky and Rajkumar Hirani bonded well on the sets of Sanju, and hence its obvious for the director to repeat the casting. The dates, timelines and other aspects are being worked upon at the moment. Only once everything falls in place, the actor would officially come on board the project,” the source added.
In 2022, SRK has devised a grand plan for filming. From the summer, the actor will be balancing Rajkumar Hirani’s social comedy and Atlee’s action entertainer. While Hirani’s film will be shot in Mumbai, where Punjab will be built, London and Budapest will follow. On the other side, Atlee’s comedy is primarily set in Mumbai and Pune. The Atlee film will reportedly be shot in between Hirani’s scheduling breaks, as the acclaimed filmmaker prefers to focus on the edit after completing a shoot schedule. For the Hirani project, he will shoot for roughly 100 days. However, these are all tentative plans, as SRK’s official shoot schedule will be set once the Pathan filming is through.
“Right now, all the energies are in there to chalk out the dates for final leg of Pathan shoot,” the source signed off.
