One of the upcoming movies of famous Indian film producer Sajid Nadiadwala is a political thriller, which shows the counter-terror story of the post 26-11 terrorist attack situation. The film is yet to be titled and is being directed by Kabir Khan with Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead. Both Kabir and Saif have done much research on the characters and the story, to able to showcase the movie right. The shoot of the film is said to start on 18th October with the first schedule of approximately 15-18 days to be shot in the conflict ridden Syria-Lebanon border. Yes, conflict ridden because the US president Barack Obama has sent out a warning to the besieged Bashar al-Assad regime of Syria recently.
This has raised eyebrows of many in Bollywood, who are a part of the shoot of Sajid and Kabir’s upcoming film including the two. With these problems taking over Syria, the safety of the cast as well as the crew shooting at the location is going to be hampered. “If US planes fly towards Syria, they will have to go over Lebanon. This puts Katrina, Saif and others in a potential war zone”, said a source in order to describe the hazardous conditions in Syria and Lebanon. This has put the producer Sajid Nadiadwala as well as director Kabir Khan in a tricky phase. However, they have decided to continue with the planned schedule of the shoot, despite of such risky situations. Without letting himself down, Sajid is ready to shed an extra Rs. 20 Lac for a well equipped and enhanced security team, who will accompany the crew to the shoot locations.
Such dedication by Sajid Nadiadwala and his crew seems to turn the impossible into possible with ease. For now, the team comprising of Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif and other members will first fly to Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, where a few scenes will be filmed followed by heading to the border!
