After having missed his yearly Eid-release this year, Salman Khan was eager to release Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai around the Diwali weekend. Reportedly, the superstar had even booked a floor of Mehboob studio from August to complete the shoot of the Prabhudeva-directed film. However, in the light of WHO’s recent statement about the coronavirus being airborne, he has postponed the schedule.
According to a report by MidDay, a source from the production revealed that Salman who is quarantining in his Panvel farmhouse was all set to return to his Bandra residence to chalk out the plan for the August shoot. He said—
However, on Sunday, Salman called off the impending schedule after discussing with his team and co-producers Atul Agnihotri, Sohail Khan and Nikhil Namit. He felt that filming indoors could pose a risk to the health of the cast and crew. On the other hand, an outdoor shoot was not feasible in the monsoon. So, he has decided to hold off the stint till October-end, post which the unit will film the remaining portions — including a song — at outdoor locations.
The source also added—
Salman’s first priority is the safety of his team members. The makers are now eyeing a 2021 festival release; by then, the theatres will have also reopened.
Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai will feature, Salman Khan, Disha Patani, Megha Akash, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff.
