Shah Rukh Khan has been away from the big screen since 2018 when Aanand L. Rai’s Zero released. The film did not garner great reviews and SRK took a step back before hopping onto a new project. Three years hence, the superstar is finally back on sets, shooting for an action drama with YRF, Pathan that also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
Not just that, he is in talks with Rajkumar Hirani for a project and has finalised one pan-india commercial film with Tamil director, Atlee. The update on the latter project is that South Superstar Nayanthara has finally come on board as the female lead of the film. A report in an online portal suggested that talks between her and SRK and Atlee had been going on for a while and the latest report is that she’s agreed to join the cast and has finished the paperwork as well.
The film will have Shah Rukh play a double role and no details on Nayanthara’s character have been released yet.
