The announcement has sent waves of joy among Shah Rukh Khan’s loyal fans, who have eagerly expressed their excitement on various social media platforms.
The comments section was flooded with praise for “Pathan’s” unbroken journey to success. The film, which initially hit the theaters in January this year, has grossed over Rs 500 crore at the domestic box office and crossed the Rs 1,000 crore mark worldwide. Directed by Siddharth Anand, “Pathan” also stars John Abraham in a prominent role.
Shah Rukh’s return to the big screen
After a gap of almost four years, SRK made a grand comeback with “Pathan”. The thriller is part of the spy franchise of Yashraj films. The film was eagerly awaited by Shah Rukh Khan’s devoted fan base and turned out to be one of the most significant successes of his career. After a string of films that didn’t perform as expected, Shah Rukh Khan took a well-deserved break before making a grand comeback with “Pathan”.
Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, Pathan has Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. SRK plays an agent who comes out of exile to stop a major terrorist attack on India.
The film also stars actresses Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles, and even features Salman Khan in a cameo appearance.
“Pathan,” which is the fourth film in YRF’s spy universe, follows Salman Khan’s “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Tiger Zinda Hai,” and Hrithik Roshan’s “Vaar.” The film was released on more than 5,000 screens in India. In addition, it attracted audiences from over 100 countries outside India, gracing nearly 2,500 screens in international territories.
