Notably, there are several sparks in the ensemble, that already include talented big names like Sanya Malhotra and Sunil Grover. "There are many more surprises in terms of casting which will be revealed in the months to follow," provided the source.
Shooting to be carried out over the next six-seven months
The movie, produced by Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment banner, is going to be "a massive Pan-Indian outing." The Bijil director will reportedly shoot it over a period of six to seven months in multiple locations. After kickstarting its shoot, Khan is touted to fly abroad along with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham to wrap up the last leg of Pathan in October.
