YES! You’re hearing the right news. This isn’t a rumor anymore. Shah Rukh Khan has been spotted outside the Yash Raj Studios in his new look with sporting long locks for his upcoming venture Pathan. The heartthrob of millions was last seen on big screen in Zero (2018) which was bombed at the box office due to its lackluster second half.
Since then his fans are avidly waiting for the next announcement from their favorite superstar.
But nothing much was baked except speculation. Amidst the pandemic, it was quite an implausible wish to see him back on screen. Shah Rukh Khan has always been an intelligent star and he never fails to use his sharp intellect to be in the box office business.
Back in the 90s, when mainstream heroes were busy breaking the jaws of lecherous villains, he brought the fresh air of romance by missing trains in Switzerland.
Shah Rukh Khan last two ventures Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero
Shah Rukh Khan last two ventures (Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero) where he played the same romantic hero, failed to impress the audience. Not the entire movie but the music from both of the films stayed with the fans.
Now, it’s 2020 and watching national and international contents on various OTT platforms has become as normal as social distancing.
One can easily assume that the king of romance has left the stations for the lovers aside and is returning to the action- thriller genre.
Yes, Pathan is an action-thriller entertainer as it is helmed by Siddarth Anand who has found his senorita in this particular school of filmmaking. In spite of getting any official announcement from neither the production house nor the actor, paparazzi and fans are incessantly sharing the news of Pathan on the internetand people are celebrating it.
As per reports, Pathan also stars Deepika Padukone as the leading lady
Fans have seen their favorite Jodi of Shah Rukh and Deepika for the last time on big screen in Happy New Year (2014). Wait, there is more to it because it has also been reported that John Abraham has joined the cast of Pathan and will be playing the role of the antagonist.
And this new look of Shah Rukh reminds fans of Don 2. Is it going to be a movie about mafia or spy? Does YRF want to gift us its own Spy-universe with Zoya, Tiger and Kabir following the trend of Rohit Shetty’s cop-universe? Let’s wait.
