After a long time, the good news that hit the B-town was Shah Rukh Khan beginning the shoot of his upcoming project, Pathan quietly at a studio in Mumbai. Also, the leading lady of the film Deepika Padukone joined the shooting schedule on Monday. As per the Mumbai Mirror, a source close to the project said, “It’s just a couple of days’ stint now for Deepika, as she is also juggling Shakun Batra’s next.”
Talking about the plot and action sequences, the source added, “It’s an intriguing world of agents and Deepika will get to do a lot of action too. Though the title is SRK-centric, Deepika plays an edgy character, who joins Pathan on a mission. It’s on the lines of what Katrina Kaif’s Zoya was to Salman Khan’s Tiger in the Tiger franchise.”
And if the recent reports are to be believed, the makers are planning to make a universe of the character playing agents with Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh, and Deepika Padukone being an important part of the franchise. While Salman is expected to begin the shooting of Tiger 3 in February 2021, if everything goes as per the plan, we might see SRK as Pathan and Salman as Tiger in Hrithik Roshan’s War sequel. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
After wrapping up the schedule of this film, SRK will start with either Rajkumar Hirani or Atlee’s project. Talking about which the source shared, “While Atlee’s film seems to be in the forefront right now, he has his heart set on Hirani’s social drama, as it will be a breather between two action-packed films. But Hirani takes his time to complete a script and a clear picture will only emerge by mid-2021. The film is currently being scripted by Raju and Kanika Dhillon, they are working on the second half.”
