MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan will next feature in Pathan with John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The film will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
It is said that this film has some of the most lavish action scenes ever shot in any Bollywood movie.
A well-placed source within the industry has exclusively apprised BollywoodLife that Pathan, which was expected by the trade and within Bollywood circles to release this Diwali, may not hit the big screen during the festival as the work pending of the movie might just demand a rethink of its planned release.
As per our source as Shah Rukh Khan is making a comeback to cinema post a self-imposed 4-year hiatus, and since Pathan is a part of YRF's spy universe along with Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif's Tiger franchise and Hrithik Roshan's War, every little detail of the movie is being scutinised with a fine comb.
In other words, producer Aditya Chopra and Director Siddharth Anand (who had incidentally also helmed War), are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the film, which also stars Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham, surpasses all expectations, and that involves canning a lot of high-octane actions sequences in exotic locales, involving copious stunt work and high-end VFX, all of which are taking time.
