What does 'Pathaan' hold in store?
Pathaan, helmed by Siddharth Anand, is touted to be a spy thriller movie produced under the Yash Raj Films banner. The film was officially announced earlier this year in March. King Khan reportedly essays the role of an R&AW agency named Feroz Pathaan in this police versus crime movie, which is said to be set in the backdrop of the Middle East.
'SRK and Deepika' nostalgia
Besides Khan, Pathaan will also star John Abraham as a ruthless gangster. Deepika Padukone is reportedly portraying the role of Shanaya Decosta in it. Pathaan marks SRK and Padukone's fourth collaboration after Om Shanti Om, Happy New Year, and Chennai Express. Salman Khan will have a special cameo in it as well. The movie is said to feature some high-octane action scenes, too!
What's in store for SRK?
