Shah Rukh Khan is making a comeback with Yash Raj Films' much-anticipated spy-thriller, Pathan. Co-starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, the Siddharth Anand directorial is said to release on Diwali this year. After shooting for a few scenes in Mumbai, the team has started working on extensive fight sequences in Dubai. Now, according to an entertainment portal, Shah Rukh and the team of Pathan will reportedly shoot for an action scene inside Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world.
A source close to the development told the portal that a big scale action scene is planned around Burj Khalifa. "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 centered around Burj Khalifa is in the offing from the team of Pathan," the source told.
The source added that an international stunt team will be choreographing the action scene. "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," the source added.
In the past, Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani's Laxmii featured a song shot outside Burj Khalifa. Shah Rukh also shot his film, Happy New Year, in Dubai.
