Buzz is that SRK will be seen playing the protagonist as well as the antagonist in Atlee’s next
Shah Rukh Khan – who has been missing from the big screen post his 2018 outing Zero – seems all set to be making up for lost time, with as many as three projects up his sleeve. And if that’s not all, one of the projects to be helmed by South’s hit director Atlee is said to have the Khan in a double role! As per reports, the Bollywood Badshah will be seen playing an investigating officer as well as a most-wanted criminal and the story will revolve around the conflicts and confrontations their contrasting worlds will lead to.
Atlee, who’s known for his action-blockbusters Mersal, Theri and Bigil, all had the lead star play double roles. On the other hand, SRK is no novice when it comes to playing double roles either having done it earlier in films like Fan and Duplicate. The actor and director were said to be in talks for over a year now before locking in their first film together.
Besides the action-drama, Shah Rukh has YRF’s Pathan and another one with Rajkumar Hirani in the pipeline. In Pathan, the Bollywood star is expected to reunite with Deepika Padukone on screen for the fourth time after having done Om Shanti Om, Happy New Year and Chennai Express together. The film will also see John Abraham play the negative lead opposite Shah Rukh.
