In ‘Pathan’, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen performing action sequences at the Burj Khalifa, just like Mission Impossible's Tom Cruise.
The Yash Raj banner movie directed by Sidharth Anand and starring Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham, and Deepika Padukone will reportedly feature an action scene that will be shot at Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, a source close to the development revealed: “The idea is to go one notch above what’s already done so far. Apart from Mission Impossible and Fast and Furious franchise, not many films have been shot inside Burj Khalifa, and Pathan will be among the first few Indian films (probably the first) to have actual visuals of the tower from inside. A big-scale action scene centred around Burj Khalifa is in the offing from the team of Pathan.”
The source added: “It’s a prolonged action sequence designed by an international stunt team, and one can expect spectacular visuals on the screen. It’s a culmination of Siddharth Anand, Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan’s vision, to shoot a massive action scene at Burj Khalifa. Don’t be surprised if you find SRK fighting on the top of the tower just like Tom Cruise, when you watch Pathan on the big screen. However, all the details of this Burj Khalifa fight scene have been kept under wraps.”
With Pathan, Shah Rukh Khan will be making a comeback to the silver screen after two years.
Pathan went on the floors in November last year and is expected to be wrapped up by June 2021.
