There's a reason why Shah Rukh Khan has earned the title of Bollywood's King Khan. He likes to do things king size and never hesitates to offer something new and exciting to his fans who treat him like a god. As we all know that SRK has been busy shooting for his much-awaited film Pathan. The movie is being produced by Yash Raj Films (YRF) and directed by Siddharth Anand. It also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in the lead. Apart from the project being made on a large scale, the makers have kept the details under wraps. But it seems like Shah Rukh Khan and YRF are planning something big to tease their fans with a special announcement.
Revealing the reason for the delay in announcing the project, a source close to the film reveals exclusively to Bollywood Life, "Big and important film for YRF and SRK. They didn't want to go the traditional route and release a poster. They wanted to announce this earlier this year but due to Covid restrictions, the actual plan went haywire."
The team wanted to shoot action sequences to announce the film but couldn't happen earlier. "Now, with some dhamakedaar sequences shot, Shah Rukh Khan and YRF will make an announcement soon with a special video tease that will blow audiences' minds and give them the real feel of what is in store."
Earlier, while talking about the line-up of her upcoming films, Deepika confirmed that she was doing Pathan along with Mahabharata, a remake of Hollywood movie The Intern and Shakun Batra's film. Salman Khan, too, had confirmed doing a cameo in the film while hosting Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar episode. In fact, in September 2020, John Abraham had liked a tweet which had mentioned Pathan in his upcoming line-ups.
While the official announcement is awaited, reports suggest that Pathan is being made on a rumoured budget of Rs 250-280 crore. Let's wait and watch for things to unfold.
