The collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee has been in the news for a while, and the movie, which is yet untitled, is finally due to start shooting in October 2021. Nayanthara, the South superstar, has been cast as the female lead in the action-packed movie, according to rumourmongers. Now, we’ve learned that Sunil Grover has been cast in a pivotal part in the film.
“The SRK – Atlee collaboration is getting bigger by the day and the makers have pulled off a massive ensemble for this action-packed entertainer. While Shah Rukh Khan, Nayanthara, Sanya Malhotra and Sunil Grover are confirmed to play key roles in the film, many more names from the Northern and Southern industry are expected to join the cast. The yet untitled saga is set to be a Pan-India film in true sense,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
Sunil has previously appeared in films like as Gabbar Is Back, Bharat, and Pataakha, among others, for which he has received critical acclaim. Several television appearances catapulted the actor to stardom. The pre-production work is in full swing, and Shah Rukh Khan will be featured in a double role, as previously announced.
The film, which has yet to be named, will be produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and is expected to be the production house’s biggest in terms of scale and expense.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan is now filming Pathan, a film directed by Sidharth Anand and also starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
