It was reported earlier that on the 50 years celebration of Yash Raj Films, Shah Rukh Khan will be teaming up with Siddharth Anand for an action film. The reports also suggested that it is called YRF Project 50 which was supposed to be announced in April. Now since the world is fighting with Coronavirus pandemic Bollywood also came to a stand still. Now there are no clear reports on whether YRF is going ahead or not.
However, there is buzz that the pre-production of the project is already in process. There is information that since the pandemic it went on hold.
A daily quoted a source as saying, “It’s a big scale action film, which was to be shot across the globe, and Siddharth Anand was planning to go on a recce to explore several virgin locations. However, he has dropped the plan now owing to the travel ban, and will go on a recce only once everything settles down.”
However, some fine tuning and script work is in the process by the director who is currently working from home.
Both Aditya Chopra and SRK are working as much as they can through video conferencing.
“The idea was for SRK to shoot for two films this year – the Siddharth Anand actioner and Rajkumar Hirani’s feel good drama. But it is all a wait and watch scenario and there lies a strong possibility of his comeback film post Zero getting delayed further,” the source added.
