Now we hear that the film is all set to be an action film, which will be shot at different locations around the globe, at a grand scale. Director Siddharth Anand was all set to go on a recce for exploring locations for the film. However, now he had to drop the plan owing to the travel ban due to the coronavirus pandemic. However the team has been working from home, as SRK is in constant touch with Aditya Chopra and Siddharth via video calls, and are working together on the script.
A source close to the development revealed,
“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.”
The source further stated, “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.”
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh will next be seen in two big cameos, first in friend Karan Johar’s Brahmastra starring Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan. Next in Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani starrer Shershaah.
