Ever since Pathan was announced, there’s been a palpable excitement surrounding the movie. Pathan stars Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham in the lead roles. Deepika and Shah Rukh Khan have already begun shooting their portions for the film. Throwing light on the same, a source close to the film unit reveals, “Despite juggling multiple film shoots, Deepika doesn’t miss training for Pathan. The workout includes a mix of functional training and Yoga. She dedicates 1.5 hour of her day towards workout for 6 days a week, keeping one day break for rejuvenation. Deepika is also following a strict diet regime, as advised to her.”
The training is especially hard considering that Deepika recently suffered from the novel coronavirus herself. Speaking about the same, the source further shares, “Getting back on sets after a severe bout of Covid-19, took a lot of emotional and physical strength for Deepika. She is still pushing to get her fitness and health completely back, and is fully committed to it.”
As the lockdown has eased, Deepika has been shooting non-stop. She wrapped one schedule of Pathan earlier and also shot for one schedule of Shakun Batra’s untitled next. The actress also has Nag Ashwin’s next with Prabhas, The Intern remake, Mahabharata, ’83 and Fighter in the pipeline besides Pathan and Shakun Batra’s next.
