Sharing more details, a source in the know informs a publication that a set resembling Punjab has been erected in Mumbai’s Film City where the team will be shooting for a period of around 40 days. “Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan are all set to start shooting for this social comedy set against the backdrop of immigration around April 15. A grand set, resembling Punjab, is put up at Filmcity in Mumbai, and that is where the team will be shooting for a period of around 40 days,” the source says.
Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, the film also stars Taapsee Pannu and Boman Irani in significant roles. While Irani has been a part of all Rajkumar Hirani’s directorial ventures, Pannu is teaming up with the filmmaker for the first time.
“Rajkumar Hirani has the habit of keeping a gap between two schedules as he prefers to edit the footage he shot in the schedule to get an idea of how his vision has translated on the screen. While Hirani will work on his edit of 40-day work, Shah Rukh Khan in the meantime will shoot for Atlee’s next, which is primarily set in Mumbai and Pune,” concludes the source.
