Deepika Padukone confirms that Shah Rukh Khan will be returning to the big screen with ‘Pathan’

Shah Rukh Khan has been on a sabbatical ever since his last release, ‘Zero’. Although speculative reports about his upcoming projects have been doing the rounds in the media, there has been no official confirmation of the same.

In a recent interview with Femina, Deepika Padukone spilled the beans on her upcoming project and in the process, confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan will be returning to the big screen with ‘Pathan’. The actress said, “So, I immediately started with Shakun Batra’s film, which is a relationship story that we haven’t seen in Indian cinema before. Then there is Pathan, an action film with Shah Rukh Khan, next is Nag Ashwin’s multilingual film with Prabhas.”

Elaborating further, she added, “Then I am doing a remake of Anne Hathaway’s movie The Intern, which is so relevant in today’s times when you have the millennial and the older generation coming together. And then, the most famous story comes out of our country, Mahabharata, in which I am playing Draupadi; I want to tell that story to the world.”

Siddharth Anand’s ‘Pathan’ also stars John Abraham in the lead role. It also reportedly features Dimple Kapadia in a key role. Salman Khan is also expected to make a special cameo in the thriller movie.

Other projects that have been associated with his name are Rajkumar Hirani’s immigration drama, and South director Atlee’s commercial entertainer where he will be seen playing a double role. The superstar also reportedly has Raj & DK’s action film in his pipeline.

Apart from these projects, Shah Rukh Khan has also some special cameos lined-up in films like ‘Brahmastra’ and ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’.
