Pathan: Shah Rukh Khan to kickstart the shooting of Siddharth Anand’s thriller on THIS date

After Aanand L Rai’s Zero, which released in 2018, we haven’t seen Shah Rukh Khan on the silver screen for around two years but now it seems, the star is set to give triple treat as he will doing three back-to-back films with directors, Sidharth Anand, Rajkumar Hirani and Atlee. The megastar will first start the shooting of War helmer’s Pathan in November end, which also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in key roles and will be shot in several countries in the upcoming eight months.

As per the Mumbai Mirror report, a source said, “While the November schedule will be in Mumbai with only SRK, co-stars, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham join him early next year during an overseas stint of the film. It is a battle royale between SRK and John, with Deepika playing an important thread, taking the narrative forward.” The makers are planning to wrap-up the film by June next and release it in the last quarter of 2021. The actor has been sporting long hair for his look in Pathan.

After wrapping this film, SRK will start either Rajkumar Hirani or Atlee’s film in August 2021. “While Atlee’s film seems to be in the forefront right now, he has his heart set on Hirani’s social drama, as it will be a breather between two action-packed films. But Hirani takes his time to complete a script and a clear picture will only emerge by mid-2021. The film is currently being scripted by Raju and Kanika Dhillon, they are working on the second half,” shared the source. Speaking about Atlee’s film, the filmmaker will come in Mumbai in the month of December as he is on the verge of locking the script. “Atlee has been developing the script remotely with a team of Karan Johar, who is co-producing the film with SRK. He will be in the city from December for narrations, to lock the cast, scout for locations and get his technical team in place,” added the source.
