The new strain of coronavirus is creating havoc in India. As per a report in Pinkvilla, Shah Rukh Khan who was shooting for Pathan has gone into quarantine. The superstar apparently took this decision after some crew members tested positive for the virus. It seems the shoot of the film has been stalled. Filmmaker Siddharth Anand also decided to get himself tested for the same. The members of the film who tested positive have been quarantined at a hotel in Andheri. It seems they have been kept at the Courtyard Hotel. Pathan is a huge action entertainer made by Yash Raj Films. But now, Shah Rukh Khan is in the stadium watching the KKR Vs Mumbai match.
A trade source told BollywoodLife, "YRF works in an extremely efficient bio bubble. Tests happen regularly on sets and all crew members are staying in a hotel. The people transporting them from set to hotel is also tested and put up in hotels. So, if there is anyone who tests positive, it would be before the schedule starts and automatically eliminated from the crew. Given that lockdown is imminent in Mumbai, Pathan crew had anyway taken a 2 day scheduled break so that they can gauge the decision. It doesn’t make sense to start a new schedule and halt it. So, if there is no lockdown, the film will anyway resume soon. This has been blown out of proportion and is factually extremely inaccurate. It is irresponsible to say the least because the industry is doing its best to ensure that work happens by maintaining all norms and regulations."
The shoot of Pathan began from November. After a large chunk, which was shot in Mumbai, the team is supposed to move to the Middle East. The film sees the return of the superhit pair of Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan. The two have done films like Om Shanti Om (2007), Chennai Express (2013) and Happy New Year (2014) in the past. Deepika Padukone will be seen in a new look in the film. Pathan also stars John Abraham as the main antagonist. Fans of Shah Rukh Khan have a double treat in form of Salman Khan. It seems he will do a cameo in the film. Salman Khan confirmed doing Pathan on Bigg Boss 14.
Shah Rukh Khan has been busy with Pathan of late. He was also missing from the IPL auction where we saw Aryan Khan doing the honours. Shah Rukh Khan took to social media to congratulate the Kolkata Knight Riders as they won their 100th match in the IPL. Fans are keenly waiting to see him back on the silver screen. There are reports of him starting work in Atlee's film in 2021 as well. Pathan promises to be a treat for all fans of the superstar. Shah Rukh Khan fans will be worried with this news.
