After a lot of rumours and speculations around SRK’s upcoming project, Sources have now confirmed that the actor will return to the big screen with Yash Raj Films’ Pathan. The film also stars John Abraham in the parallel lead and will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
As per Filmfare report, an action thriller, Pathan will go on floors in January 2021 with Shah Rukh Khan starting his schedule. John Abraham will be joining in March after he finishes the next instalment of Satyamev Jayate. SRK will play the protagonist and John will take the role of the bad guy after a long time.
This would be Khan and Abraham’s first film together. What makes the project even more exciting is the news that ‘Pathan’ is likely to see Deepika Padukone take on the female lead. Khan and Padukone have previously starred in three projects including ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Happy New Year’ and ‘Chennai Express’.
For the uninitiated, on the work front, Shah Rukh Khan was last seen on-screen was in Anand L. Rai’s Zero in 2018 that did not strike a chord with the audiences. As for John, the actor was a part of two acclaimed projects last year, Batla House and Romeo Akbar Walter.
