Shah Rukh Khan is all geared to be back on sets after a sabbatical of two years. The superstar was last seen in his 2018 film Zero where he was starred with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Ever since the actor didn’t come up with any film.
However now the wait is over as SRK is soon to begin shooting for his next film Pathan. As per reports, his shooting schedule for the film will start in November end. Pathan also has Deepika Padukone in the lead who is expected to join the shoot in January. Meanwhile, John Abraham has been casted to play the antagonist in the film.
A source who is close to the film was told MidDay, “The first schedule will be a two-month affair that will focus solely on Shah Rukh’s portions, after which the unit will take a New Year’s break. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, who plays the antagonist, will join the second stint that is slated for January 2021. Like Siddharth’s previous outing War, Pathan will be a slick and stylish revenge drama. Since the film marks Shah Rukh and John’s first on-screen union, Adi and Siddharth have etched out dramatic scenes featuring them. They have roped in action director Parvez Shaikh, who has worked on War, Brahmastra and Bell Bottom, to design high-octane fight sequences between the duo.”
The source further added, “Shah Rukh will sport a stylish look with outfits curated by stylist Shaleena Nathani. Like Raees where he was seen wearing spectacles, this film will have him flaunting customised sunglasses.”
Pathan is going to be directed by Sidharth Anand while it will be produced by Aditya Chopra under his banner Yash Raj Films.
