Pathan is one of the upcoming films that has been making headlines since a very long time now. Be it for the cast, look, storyline or shooting, the film has been all over the internet even before the official announcement.
The film will see John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Dimple Kapadia along with Shah Rukh Khan. Backed By Yash Raj Films, the film is under making currently. A special appearance from Salman Khan, who will play the role of Tiger is also expected in the film.
Now the recent update states that Shaji Chaudhary, who was recently seen playing the role of Maqbool Khan in Mirzapur and TV sensation Gautam Rode are the newest addition to the cast od Pathan.
A source close to the development informed a leading daily, “Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Films are pulling out all stops to ensure that Pathan will be Shah Rukh Khan’s biggest film ever. Now to live up to this, they are developing an entire spy universe that will see Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Shaji Chaudhary and Gautam Rode playing RAW agents being led by Dimple Kapadia.”
The source adds, “Shaji’s character in Mirzapur as Maqbool has made an impact on the audience, and he also has the aura to pull off a RAW agent charisma. As for Gautam Rode, well he has been one of TV’s best looking and physically well-built individuals, not to mention that he has the skill as well. So it was not a very difficult decision to rope them in. YRF and Aditya are creating a whole universe so it is obvious that there will have to be multiple characters, and both Shaji and Gautam were perfect.”
Pathan will mark the big return of Shah Rukh Khan after his film Zero. It is being directed by Sidharth Anand.
