The actor may then host a reception for the Bollywood fraternity in Mumbai on July 12 and resume work from the very next day.

A source says, "Shahid recently shot for the promos of dance reality show ' Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' on which he will be seen as a judge. He has spoken to the production house about taking a break for his marriage around next month. He has already completed filming his portion for the promos with fellow judge Karan Johar and will start shooting for the show by this month-end."

Another source close to the production house reveals that his absence for a week won't affect the show's schedule. "We normally shoot two episodes at a time on Tuesday. So, we won’t face any major hindrance if he decides to take an extended break. We need only a day from him and can always reschedule our shoot as per his availability," adds the insider.

Shahid Kapoor remained unavailable for comment.
