YRF to come up with the BIGGEST action film to date with SRK and Salman Khan!
Mumbai (Maharashtra): The spy universe of the YashRaj Studios is one of the most ambitious projects in the Hindi film industry. Although Salman Khan’s 2012 Independence Day release, Ekk Tha Tiger is considered the first film in the universe, it was Hrithik Roshan’s 2017 hit spy thriller ‘War’ that established the universe. Now, with Pathaan in the pipeline, Shah Rukh Khan will be joining the two heroic spies on their journey.
It had been previously learnt that Salman Khan will make an extended cameo as Avinash Singh Rathore i.e., Tiger in Pathaan. It was also reported that Shah Rukh too will cameo as Pathaan in the third instalment of the Ekk Tha Tiger franchise. According to a report by Pinkvilla, the spy universe will go bigger this time as Aditya Chopra is gearing up for the biggest action release starring Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. This will be the first collaboration between the two actors after their outing 'Karan Arjun'.
A source close to the development was quoted, “Aditya Chopra plans to take things to the next level by mounting a two-hero action spectacle featuring Tiger and Pathaan. It would be the first proper 2 hero collaboration for the two mighty Khan since the release of Karan Arjun (1995). Adi has been working on this idea for a while now and he will be extensively working on the script, screenplay and dialogues.”
The source further added, “Both SRK and Salman have kept their bulk dates vacant in the tentative period and the exact logistics will be locked once a combined narration takes place later this year. The director is also undecided, however, the entire creative control on the writing front is by the head of YRF - Aditya Chopra. He is keeping everything close to his chest at the moment.” The source also added that Aditya Chopra is planning to take the film on the floor by the end of 2023 or the first half of 2024 and the joint narration will be amongst only three people – Aditya Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
“He has been toying with multiple ideas and he seems to have finally locked the most exciting of the lot,” the source added.
Currently, Pathaan is slated to release in theatres on January 26, 2023 meanwhile Tiger 3 is gearing up for Eid 2023 release. The team is also working on the sequel of War with Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik liked the story that was given to him and has signalled to start the development of its script. Now that Pathaan and Tiger have plans of coming together on screen, when will the audience get to see the three spies together is now something to look forward to.
