Fans of Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have been ecstatic since news of the superstars' reunion in 'Tiger 3' and 'Pathan,' respectively, broke.

While 'Tiger 3' is the third edition of Salman Khan's spy thriller, 'Pathan' is SRK's comeback picture, and both films have been among the most talked-about for obvious reasons. However, it appears that audiences will have to wait a bit longer for 'Tiger 3' and 'Pathan,' since filming on both films has been put on hold, according to a recent update.

The decision was made by directors and producer Aditya Chopra in the aftermath of an increase in COVID 19 instances, according to a report by Mid Day. “The production house was vigilant with testing on set. However, once a case was detected, they immediately decided to halt work as the city’s doubling rate was high at the time," a source from 'Tiger 3' unit said.

"The crew strength of Pathan and Tiger 3 is heavy. In such a scenario, a high number of people would be at risk, even if one tested positive. Taking this into account, the directors along with producer Aditya Chopra decided to put the brakes on the shoots,” the source added.

The shooting of Irrfan Khan's son Babil Khan's web series 'The Railway Men,' starring R Madhavan and Kay Kay Menon, has also been put on hold till the number of Covid cases drops significantly.

Meanwhile, numerous production companies who have opted to continue shooting are enforcing strict safety regulations on-site. “Vidyut has been filming at Sunil Maidaan in Film City over the past few days. Akshay Kumar recently shot for a commercial in Madh Island. These instances send out a strong message to the industry that work has to go on. This time around, the industry so far has suffered less than the last two waves,” the source added.
