COVID-19 Bollywood Update: Salman Khan continues to shoot for 'Radhe'; Ranbir Kapoor's 'Bramhastra' and Shahid Kapoor's 'Jersey' shoot halted!


Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is currently in its final leg of shoot in Mumbai. In fact, only patchwork and a song featuring the actor and leading lady Disha Patani is left. However, the coronavirus panic has left the entire film fraternity in trouble with many producers and directors postponing their films. However, Salman and his crew are reportedly continuing with the film's shoot and hope to wrap it up by month-end. “Safety guidelines, as issued by the WHO (World Health Organization) will be followed on the film’s set,” a leading daily quoted a source as saying.

On the other hand, Shahid Kapoor on Saturday announced that the shoot of his upcoming film Jersey has been stopped in the light of the coronavirus outbreak. "At a time like this it is our social responsibility to do everything in our capacity to curb the spread of this virus. Team #Jersey is suspending shoot so as to enable all unit members to be with their families and in the safety of their homes. Be responsible. Stay safe," Shahid, who was shooting for the film in Chandigarh, tweeted.

Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, Jersey is a Hindi remake of the Telugu hit of the same name. The story is about a talented but failed cricketer named Arjun, who decides to make a comeback in his late thirties and play for India, in order to fulfil his son's wish. The film also features Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur.

Last but not the least, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra has encountered another roadblock, as reported by the daily. “Both Ayan and Ranbir have decided to make the safety and well-being of the team their priority. They do not want to put them at any kind of risk. So, for now, the shoot has been shifted to April,” the daily quoted its source as saying.

Coronavirus has been declared as a pandemic by World Health Organisation (WHO).
