Shah Rukh Khan’s collaboration with southern filmmaker Atlee Kumar has been causing quite a stir lately. Provenly named Sanki, the film is said to be a very entertaining commercial. Well-known Southern actor Nayanthara is said to be playing the film against SRK but the latest report sheds light on it.
SRK is finally returning to the silver screen with Pathan after a four-year hiatus. Superstar Deepika Padukone and John Abraham are filming in the film. Salman Khan will also be seen making a long cameo in the film.
Pinkville’s latest report says southern filmmaker Atlee has blocked Nayanthara as the next female head of Shah Rukh Khan. A source close to the development revealed, “Atlee and Shah Rukh have been in conversation with Khan Nayanthara for a while and eventually things have stayed in place. The actor has risen to thriller and roles have also been made.”
As for Nayanthara agreeing with Atlee’s film, the source said, “The female lead is well sketched and that’s what Drew Nayanthara brought to the film.”
The filmmaker is planning an appropriate multilingual film to bring talent from all industries on board. The report quoted the source as saying: “It is a suitable Pan-Indian film, and the makers are not stunned to get the biggest names in all film industries. It is a commercial film and everyone is excited to see this SRK in this space after a long time.”
The pre-production of the film is in full swing. “Scout location, look test, casting and other aspects have already started,” he told the source in the publication. While the role of Nayanthara remains hidden, Shah Rukh Khan will play a dual role in the film. Pathan has also piled up and wants to carry that Avatar in Atlee’s film as well.
“Although they remain the same body type, they would look different from Pathan. The team is constantly developing a special outfit for SRK based on its character traits,” the source told the publication.
