Shah Rukh Khan to resume Atlee’s film today in Mumbai

Shah Rukh Khan has been missing from the big screen for a long time now and fans are eagerly waiting to see him again in action. The actor now has an interesting lineup of films. From Siddharth Anand’s espionage thriller, drama Pathan to south filmmaker Atlee’s action-packed, as-yet-untitled drama and Rajkumar Hirani’s social comedy the actor has a busy schedule ahead.

The superstar, who is rumoured to have a dual role in Atlee’s upcoming film and had taken a five-month vacation (to deal with personal difficulties), is set to resume filming today (February 21) at Mumbai’s Film City Studios.

A tabloid quoted a source as saying, “Atlee’s movie is one of the hottest movies of the year. A huge set has been put up in Film City Studios in Goregaon, Mumbai where Atlee, Shah Rukh, Nayanthara and Sanya Malhotra will be shooting certain crucial action and dramatic portions of the movie from today. After five months, SRK will resume the shoot for Atlee again. It’s a brief schedule as SRK will fly off to Spain after that for Pathan. The stylised actioner rolled in Pune from September 21 last year with a 10-day shoot and scenes picturised on Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara. The 10-day shoot was to be followed by an elaborate action sequence at the BD Petit Parsee General Hospital in Cumballa Hill from the first week of October, but the actor could not shoot due to personal reasons.”

Shah Rukh Khan, however, did not want the shoot to be called off on his account, so it continued in South Mumbai with Nayanthara and Sunil Grover. In this week-long Mumbai schedule, Shah Rukh Khan will also finish some hospital scenes. Apart from Mumbai, the action-packed entertainer’s succeeding schedules will be shot in Dubai and other locales in India.

The source adds, “Buzz is that Atlee’s movie will see Shah Rukh Khan doing a double role again after Duplicate and Don – but with a difference. It will revolve around a father and son’s relationship, and their love conflicted by their professions. While one Shah Rukh plays a gangster, the other is his father, a senior RAW agent, who is on a mission to catch him. The theme is similar to Ramesh Sippy’s Shakti (1982) which had a retired Commissioner of Police (Dilip Kumar) chasing his own son, a gangster (Amitabh Bachchan). But for Atlee’s film, it’s a completely different story with SRK playing both father and son. Shah Rukh will sport prosthetics for the father’s role. “The film shoot begins from mid-2021 but it depends on when Pathan is complete. Shah Rukh will be donning prosthetics – something like Kamal Haasan had done in Indian (1996) when he played the double role of father and son, and for the 70-year-old father’s role, he wore a prosthetic mask designed by Michael Westmore and Michael Jones.”

Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, apparently, Atlee’s movie sees Shah Rukh essaying a double role of a father and son.
