Cobra movie’s shoot was supposed to take place in Russia
Cobra team including Irfan Pathan headed to Russia to shoot some sequences earlier in March. But the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted their plans and the team had to return to India with the travel restrictions. Having said that, the shooting of the movie is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Meanwhile, Irfan Pathan is busy covering the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is currently part of the bubble created by Star India in Mumbai. He is a Hindi commentator and the fans love his way of commentating as well.
