The King Khan is back. Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has started shooting for his next film, to be helmed by “War” director Siddharth Anand, according to a source close to the project.
Khan was spotted at Yash Raj Studios in a long hair look, leading to speculation that he has commenced filming for the movie reportedly titled “Pathan”.
The film marks his first project after 2018’s “Zero”, which received a lukewarm response.
While there is no official confirmation regarding the shoot of the movie billed as an action-thriller and produced by Yash Raj Films, an insider said, “Shah Rukh Khan started shooting for his next film with Siddharth from today.”
According to reports, the 55-year-old star is in talks with Rajkumar Hirani for a social comedy, South filmmaker Atlee for a potboiler, and “Bharat” director Ali Abbas Zafar and director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK of “The Family Man” fame for separate films.
