Shahrukh Khan arrives in Srinagar
To Shoot In World Famous Dal Lake
Gulmarg/Srinagar, Sep 5: After over a weeklong shooting in the hill resorts of Pahalgam and Gulmarg, superstar Shahrukh Khan arrived in the summer capital Wednesday afternoon to continue capturing mesmerizing locales of Kashmir for his upcoming but still untitled venture which has Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the co-cast.
SRK and Anushka along with filmmaker Yash Raj Chopra flew by a helicopter to Srinagar after completing their shooting at Pahalgam and Gulmarg – a blend of serious and romantic moments.
SINGS AT GULMARG
In the north Kashmir ski resort of Gulmarg, King Khan and Anushka were seen shooting a song sequence at the Golf Club and elsewhere on some yet to be released AR Rehman number.
Donning an army trouser King Khan arrived at the shooting venue amid tight security cover of Jammu and Kashmir Police (JKP) to dance on the expected big hit tune.
HAILS KHAKI, WEARING DARK GREENS
Donning a dark green camouflage trouser typical of army man, the role he is presumably playing in the picture, SRK could be seen hailing the Khaki ranks for the arrangements.
SRK was courteous enough to call Raja Nighat Aman, a JKP official on security duty with him and compliment the JKP for the arrangements which made the shooting remain hassle-free. Some days back the DGP Ashok Gupta too met SRK during a party at Pahalgam.
At the Gulmarg shooting pack-up King Khan and Anushka didn’t mind taking snaps with children and some other fans who had managed reaching the venue.
Though Anushka’s personal bodyguards wanted to keep her fans away, she stopped them from doing so only to make children take pictures with her.
The big crew is believed to have decided to shoot in Dal lake on the persuasion of the Nazir Ahmed Bakshi, a leading businessman of Kashmir well connected in the Bollywood circles, who aspired that Shahrukh Khan is captured in the big lens in Srinagar as well.
The move is expected to further boost tourism sector. This is what the market pundits believe would attract more and more tourists to Kashmir the way yesteryear blockbusters like Kashmir Ki Kalli, Silsala, Beetab and Sattay Pay Satta did.
At the start of his first ever visit to Kashmir, Shahrukh spent over a week shooting in Pahalgam. Interestingly, Pine and Peaks Hotel, there, gave some good sleep to otherwise “amnesiac” superstar with SRK himself acknowledging on twitter that he enjoyed a good sleep for around 10 hours.
Shahrukh was putting up at the state of the art Shabistan Presidential Suite of the hotel belonging to the Ahad Hotels and Resorts.
