Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan U.A.E schedule for ‘Pathan’ cancelled?

Increase in COVID-19 cases forces the change in shooting schedule of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathan.

Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan will be seen together in the crossover planned by YRF productions with Tiger 3 and Pathan.

While Salman Khan was suppose to join Shahrukh Khan in U.A.E to shoot the climax of the film, but now according to the reports, there has been a change in their plans and schedule.


A source shared, “Siddharth Anand will now roll some of the scenes featuring SRK and Salman in Mumbai itself. Their travel plans are cancelled, owing to increase in Covid cases. Apparently the mandatory 14 day quarantine – 7 day institutional and 7 day home seems to be the reason behind this reschedule. The producers don’t want to risk it at this point. Instead, they will be filming some portions of the climax over the next few days at YRF itself.”

Further the source revealed, “The team at Yash Raj Films has already conducted a reccee in both Dubai as well as Istanbul. So even though the Dubai schedule may be delayed, the makers could opt to shoot a portion of the film in Istanbul.” 

However, the source states that Dubai and the U.A.E will still serve as the backdrop in the film. “Few members of the team travelled and got the locations captured on their cameras. A few scenes were shot with body doubles too. They plan to use it differently in the film.”
