Following the attack on pilgrims, security agencies have intensified anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir. In August 2000, 30 pilgrims were killed during an encounter between security forces and Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists.

The studio is having a tricky time casting a male lead who can act, sing and capture the magic of the character and are committed to the actor being of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent. Production for the "Aladdin" live-action movie was supposed to begin in July this year, but this has been postponed as auditions drag on.

However, Hollywood Reporter suggests that opportunities are still open for newcomers to play Aladdin. They have named Hrithik Roshan, Zayn Malik, Fawad Khan, Dev Patel, Ranveer Singh, Avan Jogia and Priyanka Chopra who can very well be cast in the movie Aladdin.

As for the role of Princess Jasmine, Disney has narrowed down the search to two candidates: "Power Rangers" actress Naomi Scott and Indian actress Tara Sutaria.

The long casting process, however, appears to be a good sign as it indicates Disney's determination to get the casting right for the iconic film.
