For Yash Chopra's upcoming film, the actor hangs from a bridge and shoots midair, but takes a break from the hectic schedule to meet son before he leaves for London.
After a grueling eight-day schedule in Ladakh, Shah Rukh Khan arrived at the Srinagar International Airport on Monday. "My father's one unfulfilled wish was to bring me to Kashmir cos his mom was from here. Now I am here, it feels I am in his big strong arms," tweeted the actor. Within minutes of his arrival, he boarded a private chopper to avoid the wet roads and reached the hill resort in Pahalgam, south Kashmir. The crew of the film - including Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif and director Yash Chopra were waiting for him. On Tuesday, a difficult bridge blowing scene was planned. Sources from the valley told us how the unit planned to blast a bridge in Pahalgam.
Meanwhile back at the actor's mansion in Mumbai, his son Aryan was busy packing his bags to leave for London - mommy Gauri in tow. And if sources are to be believed, papa Khan did not let his son go off without meeting him. In the midst of the adrenaline pumping action sequences planned in the valley, and driving through the cold deserts of Ladakh, Shah Rukh, say sources, took a break. He flew down to Mumbai to see his son off to his school, Seven oaks inKent. In fact, the actor (perhaps on his way back from Mumbai) had tweeted,"Dark clouds, wet roads, too early for even life to feel alive but I am on my way to make movies."
But while Gauri was spotted leaving with son Aryan for London, daddy had to rush back to the sets in Kashmir - to shoot in midair as we can now see.
The doting daddy however, had visited his son's future school earlier. On June14, Shah Rukh visited the institution, which is said to be one of the finest educational hubs for youngsters aged 11-18 years. And on August 4, Aryan's admission was finally done.
On Monday, August 27, Aryan was thus off to a new phase of his life. Far from the media glare his parents decided to keep him away from, Aryan flew off with mum. Close friends came to bid him a happy journey.
