Film on Salman's Tiger against Shah Rukh's Pathaan might happen
Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan scripted history with several cinema firsts, and we witnessed the two biggest Khans coming together to share one screen. As fans loved to see SRK and Salman Khan sharing the same space, they might just get something more! Exactly 30 years after Karan Arjun, YRF's spy universe has decided to feature two superstars in an epic two-hero action film, reportedly.
Why does this story matter?
- The visually spectacular, action extravaganza Pathaan wowed the audience worldwide and crossed the mark of Rs. 500 crore club domestically in a matter of just 22 days.
- Helmed by Siddharth Anand, it is the fourth film in Aditya Chopra's ambitious spy universe after EK Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), and War (2019).
- Notably, from Pathaan, the official crossover of characters has started.
First draft of the action film has been locked
A source confirmed to Pinkvilla that the plot of the two-hero crossover film featuring Tiger and Pathaan has been locked. The story of the action flick has been developed by Chopra himself, along with Shridhar Raghavan, who has been appointed as the mentor writer of the spy universe. This film will mark the first proper collaboration between the two Khans since 1995.
Face-off will be like Iron Man versus Captain America
This collaboration will be in stark contrast with what the viewers had seen in Karan Arjun. As per the source, the "biggest Indian action film" will be a face-off between Tiger and Pathaan. The two mighty Khans will face off, exactly the same way as Iron Man and Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Batman versus Superman from the DC Extended Universe.
Will there be other character crossovers in this spy universe?
There are multiple characters in the ever-expanding Indian spy universe apart from Pathaan and Tiger, who are speculated to cross paths in the upcoming projects. These include Hrithik Roshan as Kabir, who is speculated to cross paths with Pathaan and Tiger at some point in time. Whereas, there could be a possible crossover between the female protagonists Zoya (Katrina Kaif) and Rubai (Deepika Padukone).
