Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma shoot for Imtiaz Ali's film in Punjab; see pictures here

Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma are currently shooting for the final schedule of Imtiaz Ali's yet untitled film. They were spotted shooting for a Punjabi folk song in the heartland of the state. While Anushka Sharma sported the same Sikhni look that she was recently seen as in Anshai Lal's Phillauri, Shah Rukh Khan was seen as a turbaned Sikh for the first time.

Khan plays a tourist guide in the film and Sharma plays a Gujarati girl on a world tour. After shooting in Prague, Amsterdam and Budapest, the cast and crew have returned to India to shoot in Ludhiana and Amritsar. DNA reports that the song is being choreographed by Bosco Martis. The film has five more songs, two of them are choreographed by Vaibhavi Merhcant and another one by Ashely Lobo.

Khan looks spot on as a turbaned man. He was seen as a Sikh soldier named Papa G in a commercial. However, this is the first time that he will be seen in the turbaned look on the silver screen. Other superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan have flaunted this look on the screen in Tinnu Anand's Major Saab, Devgn's Son of Sardaar, Anees Bazmee's Singh Is Kinng and Ali's Love Aaj Kal.

The song looks like a festival song, a Baisakhi song on the face of it. The visuals transport the viewers to Yash Chopra's 2004 romantic drama Veer Zara. Khan, Preity Zinta, Hema Malini and Bachchan had shot for a similar looking Punjabi folk song, 'Lo Aa Gayi Lohri Ve', on the occasion of Lohri in the film.

The film, tentatively titled Rahnuma, is slated to release on 11 August and will clash with Shree Narayan Singh's quirky romantic comedy Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar.
