SRK to finally kick-off shooting for 'Pathan' in November
After a long hiatus of two years, Shah Rukh Khan is finally back in the game.
He is gearing up for his next film titled Pathan, the shoot of which will begin by the end of November.
This is perhaps the longest break King Khan has taken between two releases, ever since he debuted with Deewana in 1992.
Here's more on this.
The film is a high-octane action thriller
Helmed by War director Siddharth Anand and bankrolled by Yash Raj Films, Pathan is touted to be a stylish action thriller.
SRK, who is currently in the UAE cheering for his cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing IPL 2020, is often seen sporting long hair and a light beard. That, reportedly, is the superstar's look for the movie.
It also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham
A source told Mid-Day that the first schedule -- a two-month-long affair -- will focus solely on SRK's portions. After that, the team will take a New Year's break.
Deepika Padukone and John Abraham (who plays the antagonist), will join the second schedule that is slated for January 2021.
The film will feature dramatic action scenes featuring SRK and John, the source further informed.
Shaleena Nathani to do the styling for 'Pathan'
"Shah Rukh will sport a stylish look with outfits curated by stylist Shaleena Nathani. Like Raees (2017 movie) where he was seen wearing spectacles, this film will have him flaunting customized sunglasses," the source added.
A film with Rajkumar Hirani is coming too
SRK also reportedly has a Rajkumar Hirani movie in the pipeline.
As per reports, the film has been written by Hirani along with Kanika Dhillon and Abhijat Joshi. It will be shot across locations in Punjab and Canada.
For the unversed, King Khan was last seen in Zero (2018), also starring Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. However, the movie tanked at the box office.
He will also be seen in two interesting cameos
Meanwhile, SRK shot two interesting cameos during his self-imposed sabbatical.
He will be seen playing a journalist who interviews scientist Nambi Narayanan in R Madhavan's upcoming biopic Rocketry: The Nambi Effect.
And in Ayan Mukerji's ambitious superhero movie Brahmastra, he will essay the role of a scientist who appears at the film's beginning and introduces the audiences to the fantasy world.
