Shah Rukh Khan to return to the silver screen with Siddharth Anand’s Pathan

Siddharth Anand’s Pathan will see Shah Rukh back on screen with Deepika Padukone after a break of 2 years.

Shah Rukh Khan was on a break from the big screen for some time now. His final project before the break was the 2018 movie Zero. Since this, he has maintained a low profile without much news about upcoming projects.

His name was associated with several films. Starting with Rajkumar Hirani’s next movie to a new flick with south biggie Atlee, actress Deepika Padukone has confirmed his comeback. She has revealed that his next project is Siddharth Anand’s Pathan.


Reports state that Pathan also stars John Abraham in a lead role. The action flick went on floors last year and, the first schedule is finished.

Talking about her line up films in an interview with Femina, she talks about Pathan. Deepika 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, and after that is Nag Ashwin’s multilingual film with Prabhas.”

“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 coming out of our country, Mahabharata, in which I am playing Draupadi; I want to tell that story to the world,” she added.

Shah Rukh Khan is yet to make an official announcement about this comeback after two years. He dropped a hint in his New Year message where he ended his video by saying, “See you on the big screen in 2021.”

He was busy with his production ventures with two releases under his production banner Red Chillies Entertainment. The movies are Kaamyaab and Class of 83. His next production is Bob Biswas, the origin story of the bespectacled hitman from the 2012 hit Kahaani. The film features Abhishek Bachchan in a pivotal role.
