Shah Rukh Khan has been away from the big screen since ‘Zero’ back in 2018. After a break of over two years, he’s now preparing for a flurry of new films. One of the films includes a collaboration with Atlee Kumar’s next movie.
Reports say the star will be back to battling with himself in a dual role, reports Mid Day. He’s been no stranger with this type of movie with the likes of ‘Duplicate’ (1998), ‘Paheli’ (2005), and ‘Fan’ (2016). The dual role is set to be both an investigating officer and a criminal.
A source said, “Atlee and Shah Rukh have been discussing a potential collaboration for two years now and have brainstormed on multiple subjects. They have finally fixed on an action film, which has SRK playing an investigating officer of a top Indian agency and a most-wanted criminal. The story revolves around these two characters who are worlds apart, their conflict and confrontation.”
The source also added, “Three of Atlee’s four directorials, Theri, Mersal and Bigil, feature the protagonist in double or triple roles. He loves exploring the different aspects of an actor’s persona within the same film. He is looking to continue the trend with two diametrically different characters in this film as well.”
Khan is also doing Siddharth Anand’s ‘Pathan’ with John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. The star also has a cameo in Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s ‘Brahmastra’ and is also expected to make a special appearance in Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani’s ‘Shershaah.’
