Shah Rukh Khan fans are eagerly waiting to see their idol back on the big screen. And whilst the star is yet to make any official announcement, his upcoming project titled ‘Pathan’ has been providing updates every day.

‘Pathan’ has a tentative release date of sometime in the final quarter of 2021. And then after this, there are several talks regarding Khan’s potential next project with Atlee and Rajkumar Hirani, reports Box Office Worldwide.

Production on ‘Pathan’ will apparently kick off this month and John Abraham, Deepika Padukone joining Khan in the new year. A report states, “While the November schedule of Pathan will be in Mumbai with only SRK, co-stars, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham join him early next year during an overseas stint of the film. It is a battle royale between SRK and John, with Deepika playing an important thread, taking the narrative forward.”

“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 report continued.

Atlee will be arriving in Mumbai to finalise the entire cast of the film with a new workspace being set up for him in city.

“Atlee has been developing the script remotely with a team of Karan Johar, who is co-producing the film with SRK. He will be in the city from December for narrations, to lock the cast, scout for locations and get his technical team in place,” the report concluded.
