Wednesday, April 14, 2021 • Hindi Comments

Now that the second wave of Covid-19 is spreading like a wildfire, it is not uncommon to hear news about film schedules getting halted due to cast or crew testing positive. Same was being reported about Shahrukh Khan starrer 'Pathan'. Rumors were circulating that Shahrukh has been quarantined after a few crew members turned out to be Covid-19 positive. The rumors are all false though. The team of 'Pathan' was filming in Mumbai and their break was pre scheduled. The production has been halted till Maharashtra government takes a decision about enforcing lockdown.

Maharashtra govt has revealed that they are figuring out how to deal with the Covid-19 virus and they'll reach a decision about enforcing lockdown by 14th April. A source close to the film shared, "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 source added.
