Fans of Shah Rukh Khan will probably have to wait longer to see King Khan on screen. The shoot of his YRF film has been postponed again due to the rising number of Omicron cases in Spain. 

The Siddharth Anand directorial also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham with a cameo appearance as Tiger by Salman Khan. The film supposedly marks the comeback of the actor on the big screen after two years. The shoot of the drama was earlier postponed indefinitely due to Aaryan Khan's case.

According to Free Press Journal, the film is suffering a major setback again due to the rise in the cases of Omicron where the team was supposed to shoot some important sequences of the film. The shooting schedule in Spain was earlier planned for October but was postponed due to SRK's personal issues and now the virus has taken a toll on the plans. 

As per a source, the shoot for Pathan was to take place in the country. The team had planned to shoot two songs and a few action sequences. "But that was not to be as Shah Rukh Khan had to take a break due to the case against Aryan. But now, when he had allotted these dates in January, the Covid-19 cases in Spain are on an all-time high,” said the source.

Spain had recorded over 1.6 lakh cases in a single day and the cases have been crossing a lakh consecutively. " Even though 80 per cent of Spain is vaccinated and most people have received booster shots, the shooting atmosphere is not very good in Spain. Hence the makers were prudent enough to push the shoot,” the source further added. 

The shoot schedule is now being planned for February after consulting Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone who will be shooting the songs and some other portions in over three weeks. Now, we need to wait and hope the cases come under control and the shoot resumes. 

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan will also be shooting for Atlee's next, which is said to be an action thriller alongside Nayanthara, Sanya Malhotra, Rana Daggubati, Sunil Grover and Priyamani. Khan has also signed Rajkummar Hirani’s film about 'donkey fight'.
