A source in the know divulges, “Siddhant’s date diary has gone awry due to the lockdown and (he) will have to reschedule all his films. Out of three films he has in hands, debutant director Varun V Sharma’s Bunty Aur Babli 2 is almost completed and has only a song remaining which will be shot in a few weeks at Yash Raj Studios, keeping safety measures in place. Shakun’s Dharma production is expected to roll once normalcy returns and will be filmed in one go. Since Siddhant’s action film will be mounted on a large scale with most outdoor sequences outside of India, it’s expected to get off the ground only after shootings in foreign is allowed. Although the makers have not locked a timeline, they are expecting to start it in December or January 2021.”
