Bollywood superstars Deepika Padukone and Shahrukh Khan have signed a film together and will be pairing up for Aditya Chopra’s Pathan. The film is an action-oriented movie where Shahrukh will play a Pathan.
“It’s a massy title which sees Shah Rukh Khan play the most heroic character of his career. The actor has been on the hunt to do an action film for a while now and Siddharth Anand offered him exactly what he was looking for. The character is rooted, earthy, larger-than-life, it’s heroic, it’s stylish and has the swag to pull off the big-scale action,” a source with information on the project told Bollywood Hungama.
Speaking of Deepika’s character, the source said “It’s a meaty role, which is the primary reason for Deepika Padukone to sign on for the film.”
It is also reported that Aditya Chopra will be announcing the film in the next six weeks. While Shahrukh is making a screen comeback after two years with his last appearance in Zero, Deepika has 2020 release Chhapaak as her latest flick. The two last appeared together in 2014 Happy New Year.
