Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathan plans next shoot schedule in Europe!
Pathan, the much awaited return of King Khan on the big screen, is touted to be one of the biggest action thrillers of Indian cinema. The film starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, had gone on floors last year but the shoot had to be halted amidst the second wave of pandemic.
Now, we hear that almost all production house are doing vaccination drives for their shoot crew and staff so that the films can resume shoots. Pathan seems to be one of the first films to get on floors, as soon as the lockdown restrictions are lifted.
It has been reported that after completing few days of shoot at YRF studios in Mumbai, the next main schedule of Pathan will happen overseas. Some reports claim that the unit will film some key scenes in Russia. Some are, however, reporting that Pathan’s foreign schedule will take place in Finland.
“Pathan will be shot in three European countries. Which these three countries would be and when this schedule will take place, it’s difficult to say right now. It all depends on the rules in the European Union when they plan to travel. Also, producer Aditya Chopra would like all unit members to be fully vaccinated as this can be mandatory. But the pace of vaccination is slow right now, though it’s expected to pick up in a few weeks thankfully. The makers are also considering whether they can get some crew members from Europe itself, who have completed their full dose of vaccination.”, a source informed.
The source adds, “A clearer picture will emerge in a few weeks from now. Once that happens, YRF (Yash Raj Films) will take a call on the three countries where the shoot will take place.”
The source also says, “60% of the shoot is over. The balance 40% will take place in these foreign locations. All the grandeur and scale will be seen in the final schedule of Pathan. Aditya Chopra wants to go all out and ensure that Pathan looks like a slick product matching international standards. It’s sure to be a treat to watch the film on the big screen.”
