A lot had gone for a toss in the Bollywood industry after the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Several shooting schedules had to be pushed. But, almost after 5 months of things being shut, actors like Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan have resumed their shoot. Looks like Salman Khan is not in this favour.
Recently it was announced that the Jai Ho actor will resume shooting for three films, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and Guns Of North amid COVID-19 pandemic. But, unfortunately, there is a twist in the story. Read on to know more.
According to reports in Bollywood Hungama, it is reliably learnt that Salman Khan has decided to discontinue all shooting until the Covid-19 scare subsides which means fans will have to wait for a little longer to see their superstar on the silver screens.
A source close to the development informs, “Salman doesn’t want to take any risks. He has two films on the anvil. Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai had just 5 days of shooting left whereas Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali is yet to start. Salman has decided to put both on hold until the atmosphere is relatively safe.”
The reason for risking this indefinite delay rather than the virus is manifold. “Salman has a responsibility not only to himself but to hundreds of crew members who would be on the set. He won’t return to shooting even though lockdown restrictions are now lifted to a degree and his colleague Akshay Kumar is heading to Scotland to shoot for Nikhil Advani’s Bell Bottom.”
Now fans can only hope and pray that the coronavirus cases rising curve flattens soon so that Salman Khan can begin shooting for his much talked about films.
