According to a report published in Mid-Day, Pathan’s crew last shot for the film on April 12. After the schedule,the team went on a two-day break and was unable to resume shooting due to the lockdown imposed by the Maharashtra government. This was done by the state to curtail the increasing number of COVID-19 cases.
If a source close to Yash Raj Films is to be believed,the shooting will resume after the entire team of Pathan is vaccinated. It is being said that many crew members have already got the jab,while the ones who haven’t are likely to get vaccinated in the coming week.
The source also informed the news portal that if all goes well, there are chances that the government might lift the lockdown after June 15. The production house will also be taking all necessary precautions against COVID-19 when they resume shooting. It is being said that the filming will only be done inside the Yash Raj Studio in Andheri, Mumbai.
