Recently there were reports of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan’s quarantining himself after some crew members of Pathan tested positive for COVID-19. Be that as it may, turns out there is no reality to the news. The group of Pathan who had begun shooting in Mumbai have taken a set break for the previous two days. The creators plan on beginning another timetable for the film once the Maharashtra government settles on the lockdown in the state post April 14.
The Maharashtra Government had said that it will be settling on the lockdown in the state considering the fast surge in COVID-19 cases and will arrive on a decision post April 14. In the midst of this came the reports of Pathan crew testing positive for the infection. Speaking on the same, a trustable trade source said, “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 are 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 two 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,” the sources further said.
Pathan is one of the most anticipated films. While there has been no official announcement about the film, it is known that Shah Rukh Khan will be making a comeback to the silver screen with the action packed film. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
