Just yesterday, we had news of Deepika Padukone starting work on the much-awaited film, Pathan. Starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role and directed by Siddharth Anand, the film went on floors in a studio in Mumbai last week as SRK returned to a film set after almost 2 years post his last release, Zero.

Now, we have gotten more news about the film and it’s all kinds of exciting! A report in Mumbai Mirror quotes a source as saying that the film is going to be set in ‘an intriguing world of agents’ and that DP’s role is an edgy one, who joins Pathan on an action-packed mission! She is also reportedly going to have a lot of stunts and action sequences in the film. The source adds that her character could be similar to that of Katrina Kaif‘s character in Tiger Zinda Hai, opposite Salman Khan, where she played an ISI agent.

The source further says that for now, Deepika just has a couple of days of shoot for the film as she is also working on Shakun Batra‘s upcoming romantic drama simultaneously. She will return to the Pathan sets in mid-December and shoot most of her portions by June next year.

SRK and DP are always a duo who create magic on screen and I am super excited to see them kick some butt with this action thriller!

The report also adds that there is a universe of such special agents that is being created where SRK and DP from Pathan, Salman and Katrina from the Tiger franchise and Hrithik Roshan from War will join hands and make appearances in each others’ films. That’s going to be super cool, amirite? I sure can’t wait for it! What about you guys?
