Today, Shah Rukh Khan fans have more than one reason to celebrate! While fans will be marking 25 years of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, it has been confirmed that King Khan is ready to find his way to the sets. Over the past year, fans have been itching to know when the actor will return to the big screen. While numerous rumours made the rounds, Shah Rukh denied commenting on his next project. However, Mid-Day has now confirmed that Shah Rukh will end his two-year hiatus with Pathan. 

The film will see Shah Rukh reunite with his Om Shaanti Om and Chennai Express co-star Deepika Padukone while it will mark John's first project with SRK. John plays the baddie in the movie. The national daily has revealed that the movie will go on floors in November with the filming primarily focusing on Shah Rukh. The film will be shot in Yash Raj Studios, in Mumbai. A trade expert informed the newspaper that the first schedule will last for two months following which the team will take a break for New Year. 

The crew will reunite in January with Deepika and John joining the team in January 2021. "Like Siddharth's previous outing War [2019], Pathan will be a slick and stylish revenge drama. Since the film marks Shah Rukh and John's first on-screen union, Adi and Siddharth have etched out dramatic scenes featuring them," the source said. The makers have brought in action director Parvez Shaikh, who has been a part of movies like War, Brahmastra and Bell Bottom, for high-octane fight sequences between SRK and John. The outlet adds that Shah Rukh will not announce the movie on the occasion of his birthday next month. 

Fans would have noticed that the actor has been sporting a long hairdo and a beard at the ongoing Indian Premier League. The insider claims that the look is a part of his role in the movie. It is also said that the movie will add in the element of specs, as seen in Raees. 

Are you ready to welcome back Shah Rukh Khan? Our arms are wide open!

Film business is a demand and supply business. Nobody is demanding Srk and Deepika anymore so their supply won't get buyers and ultimately they will dumped for new demands.

What ever hate everyone is spreading, its their profession to act and make movies and so will they. They are passionate and even if movie doesn't make money, they still produce the movie since its a creative art. Also, you can see they support one another and hence choose Deepika on her acting abilities and not on everyone’s hate. Negative people go get a life. What you say doesnt affect thise actors.

This movie will send him for long long sabbatical. Their last outing Hsppy New Year was not a success. Srk is now more old and Deepika’s drug case is still fresh.

Can't wait to see the beautiful and talanted Deepika and the King SRK together again in a film. It will be just super awesome...YAY!!!

SRK don't have any fan following in today's youth btw 16-25. They think of him as an oldie who is refusing to retire and desperate to romance young girls. No one is missing him. It's time for him to play father roles of Sara and Jhanvi.

For me Deepika has lost her charisma forever. She won't be the same Deepika I adored. She is emotional only in public but in reality she is just like any other rich brat.

Why would I see a man in his late 50s to be acting as a man in late 30s with wrinkled face. Even in JTHJ he did that. He was around 50 at that time and his character in film was 25 and he was romancing girls in their 20s.

Srk’s choice and not yours. So get a life. Don’t you do the same work until your old age??

Khan's should work with Kajol, Aishwarya, Rani and Pretty or Madhuri dixit. The likes of Deepika, Anushka, Katrina are too young to work with them now. Their pairing was passable till a few years ago when khan's were in late 40s and these actresses were in late 20s but not anymore. Khan's looks too old now to romance a 30 something actress.

I am convinced that paid PR comments are posted here. Who is even discussing casting n pairing after the public has lost interest and dont even care!!!. Do you think rotten faces like SRK and deepika will attract audience. BRING IT ON. Let's see. PV hope you will post. Dont be biased

Indian public must boycott these films until SSR gets justice. It is important to restore the public’s faith in Bollywood which they have shown utter disregard. These people go around claiming “content is king” but what will u do with content if the audience is not going to watch your films??!!! Boycottthekhans

SSR allegedly committed suicide because of mental health issues. Indian Logic let’s bully, troll and accuse bollywood like they are not human beings who can have mental breakdowns. SSR movies failed in the box office. Indian logic that’s nepotism let’s boycott bollywood . You people are the biggest hypocrites bollywood did not fail SSR we as an audience failed him, his management failed him by signing bad contracts. The funny thing is Deepika is one of the bollywood actress that actually praised SSR and did work with him but you guys are here bashing her on the behest of Kangana who refused to work with him. The same way SSR suffered from depression Deepika also suffered from depression if anything happens to her due to unproven drug accusations and online bullying are you guys gonna take responsibility? Ya need to understand actors are just human like us just because they make millions that does not mean we can be unkind to them.

U sound like the paid pr of Bollywood mafia. SSR was a positive and full of life kind of person. He did under extremely mysterious circumstances. Bollywood may or may not have anything to do with his death and that’s for the investigation agencies to decide. However, what’s blatantly clear is that Bollywood was dead silent on SSR’s death. And these same people showed a fake unity when it came to protecting their reputation. If u cannot speak up for a industry member u lost, then please spare us this fake show of how holy Bollywood is, not wrong in calling like it is!!

Calm down Deepika fans, and get this fact into your brain that Virat would have never dated Deepika. His taste is Anushka and he adores her. Deepika deserved a druggy and joker like Ranveer who is living off on films left by Sushant or may be he steak those films.

Bollywood wake up please— this SRK needs to stop playing lead roles that should go to 20–30 year old. Geez :: his heroines have retired decades ago including Ashwarya and he’s still around romancing girls half his age. Creepy. Where are the so called feminists of Bollywood like Sonam, Swara, tapsee?!! Why don’t u speak on this and give ure useless opinion.

This role would have gone to Anushka if she was not pregnant as she is always the first choice for khan films then it's Katrina and then it's Deepika. Similarly for any women centric film Kangana is the first choice then alia and then Deepika. Deepika is always 3rd choice for any film.

She can be first choice all she wants but Anushka and Srk have a horrible track record. I’ll be surprised if they want to work together again

I think deepika knows that she won't be able to carry a women centric film like Kangana or Alia so she is back to competing with Anushka and Katrina for khan and big budget films.

Sorry but the title sounds like something from the the 1990s... Why could they have not cast another female lead? Why deepika? Are they no other talanted actresses?

So SRK is the villian here and Deepika is his lover and John will be a cop and then this cat and mouse game.......and in one word the film will be a Sh*T. I thought SRK will come up with something good to reinvent himself guess not he is still stuck with Don 2 types of films.

SRK used to be a good actor but not anymore. He wants to be a hero and he wants to compete with Salman, hritik and Akshay .He is now too OLD to be a hero romancing Deepika, Katrina or Anushka. He should do character roles like Aamir did in dangal.
