It’s been two years since Shah Rukh Khan’s last release Zero which also starred Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. Now the superstar is all set to get back into action with three films — Siddharth Anand‘s Pathan, Rajkumar Hirani‘s untitled social comedy and South filmmaker Atlee‘s actioner. While it is known that King Khan will be playing a double role in the Atlee’s actioner, reports suggest that SRK will portray the roles of father and son whose clashing ideals will draw a wedge between them.
This film will also mark his third attempt at a double role post Duplicate (1998) and Don (2006). According to a report by MidDay, a source was quoted as saying—“Unlike those films, however, here, the two characters are a generation apart. At the heart of the actioner is the father-son relationship, which is fractured by their polarising worldviews. The father is a senior R&AW agent, who is on a mission to capture his gangster son. Though the premise is similar to that of Ramesh Sippy’s Shakti (1982), the stories have nothing further in common”. The project is scheduled to go on floors from mid-2021 after the actor completes shooting for Pathaan.
