On Monday (August 5), the government of India came with the landmark decision of abolishing Article 370 of the Constitution. Home Minister Amit Shah announced it in Rajya Sabha. This decision might put a halt to the shooting of a few movies. Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra were scheduled to shoot in Kashmir in the coming months.

Sidharth’s upcoming movie ‘Shershaah’ (on Captain Vikram Batra) was supposed to be shot in Kashmir. Now, the shooting schedule has been postponed. As reported by IANS, the shooting has been pushed and no new date has been given yet. Also, the makers of ‘Sadak 2’ were planning to shoot an important segment of the film with Sanjay, Alia and Makarand Deshpande. It has now been put on hold.

Line producer Md. Abdullah (arranges shoots in Jammu and Kashmir) of Hami Asto Productions said, “There were some big projects in line — two to three Bollywood films and one Telugu movie. Now, we can’t say if that will happen because of the disturbed environment. Maybe they will push the schedule or maybe they will go to a different location.”

Film and trade expert Girish Johar said, “There is some unrest and confusion going on in Jammu and Kashmir. The government has taken measures. So, all the planned shoots in the region will be delayed for a while. It will not have much negative impact in terms of cost escalation, because productions of these films were yet to start.”

We wish everything is resolved and the shoots of all these movies start soon.
