5 Bollywood A-Listers With Shooting Calendars Currently As Empty As Our Wallets & Here’s
If you are reading this, it means you must be as ardent a movie buff as we are. So tell us, have you noticed that some very prominent Bollywood actors have been MIA of late? As in, there is hardly any news regarding their upcoming projects, or any buzz about ongoing shoots and no BTS snaps and gossip to pass our time with.
Now, since that got us wondering and curiosity got the better of us, we looked up five Bollywood A-listers who do not seem to be shooting any film currently. Now, we don’t claim to be a bunch of know-it-alls (though in all honesty, we do think we are just that), but you see when such big stars from the Hindi film industry are shooting for films, word travels swiftly.
So as per our research, it seems that these five actors are not shooting for any film at the moment. Here’s why.
1. Shah Rukh Khan
Post the disaster that was Zero, SRK seems to be rooting for a sabbatical from Bollywood. Here’s what he told the media about not signing films, “Usually what happens is when your one film is coming to an end, you begin work on your next film and I get involved within 3-4 months. But this time I am just not feeling like…My heart doesn’t allow me to..I just felt that I should rather take time out, watch films, listen to stories and read more books. Even my kids are in their college stage…my daughter is going to college and my son is about to finish his studies. So I just want to spend more time with my family.”
2. Anushka Sharma
Even for Anushka, Zero seems to have inspired the need to take a break from the demanding job that is acting. She appeared in as many as four films last year, starting with Pari, Sui Dhaaga, Sanju and then Zero. Lately we saw her accompanying husband Virat Kohli during the ICC World Cup 2019, and it seems she’s enjoying her break to the fullest.
3. Rajkummar Rao
With Judgementall Hai Kya and Made In China in the pipeline and ready for release this year, there hasn’t been any news of newer projects for Rajkummar. At least none that has been announced yet. While Rajkummar’s upcoming film Judgementall Hai Kya is set to release very soon, the Stree actor wrapped up shooting for Made In China in May. We really hope to get some news about his next film soon though.
4. Sonam Kapoor
Last seen in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga earlier this year, Sonam’s next release is slated for September titled The Zoya Factor which also stars Southern star Dulquer Salmaan. However, currently she has been travelling with her husband and making the most of her free time before starting any new projects.

AB Jr. has been off the grid for quite some time now. Last seen in Manmarziyaan, which got him some real good reviews too, Abhishek doesn’t seem to be working on any projects currently. And if you have noticed, he hasn’t made many public appearances lately too.
