‘Pathaan’ becomes first Hindi film to be shot at the frozen lake Baikal in Siberia, report

Pathaan’ becomes the first Hindi film to be shot at the frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia. Director Siddharth Anand opened up about the bike chase scene. 

Filmmaker Siddharth Anand’s upcoming film ‘Pathaan’ has been in the news for a long time. Now, as per new reports, the film has become the first Hindi movie to be shot at the frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia. Siddharth opened up about the bike chase scene shot there in a recent statement.

The director said they have taken the action in the film ‘several notches above what Indian audiences have seen in theatres.’

He stated, ‘In fact, we have only shot action sequences that have never been attempted by any Indian film so far. Pathaan promises to deliver the best visual spectacle for people and we have shot a high speed bike chase sequence on the stunning frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia.’

He further added that they brought every equipment for action sequences from Moscow, and it was a tough job as it was situated about 2000 kilometers away from where they were shooting but the production team handled everything properly.

He also said, ‘We ended up shooting the most visually stunning chase sequence on frozen ice and biting cold and I hope this sequence will make people jump off their seats because we are truly very happy with how it has shaped up.’

According to a Mid-day report, a source close to the production team said, ‘The scene comes at a critical juncture in the movie, and sees Shah Rukh in a bike-chase sequence with John. After Lake Baikal was suggested for the scene by Aditya, only Sid and Casey went for the recce. On seeing the lake, they felt it served as the perfect backdrop for the action set-piece. The sequence was shot in the winter of 2021. Keeping the safety measures in mind, only seven to eight Indian technicians were present on the day of the shoot, besides Shah Rukh, John and Siddharth. A local crew from Russia was also hired.’

‘Pathaan’ stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. It is all set to release on January 25, 2023.
