We are all eagerly waiting for our Badshah to return to the big screen, but there is still some time. Pathan which marks Shah Rukh Khan’s come back to cinema will release in 2022. The film also stars one of his favourite Heroine Deepika Padukone and handsome hunk John Abraham. SRK has been sporting long hair and will have an edgy look for director Siddharth Anand’s out and out action film, Pathan. The film is included in Yash Raj Film’s (YRF’s) 50 years slate.

Well- Known trade analyst Taran Adarsh has now revealed that the YRF movie is not slated to release in 2021. He took to Twitter to reveal that Pathan is tracking a 2022 release now. He wrote, “#BreakingNews… #Pathan – which marks #SRK’s return to the big screen after a hiatus – will release in 2022… Not 2021… #SRK collaborates with leading production house #YRF after a long gap(sic).”

Superstar Salman Khan will also appear in the film as a special cameo. “When this show ends, we will move to Pathan, then Tiger (3) and later to Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. And as eight months will pass, we will anyway be back with Bigg Boss season 15,” the actor had said in the episode.

There had been speculation that the release will be postponed after Yash Raj Films announced its 2021 calendar earlier this week with no mention of Pathan. The calendar featured Sandeep aur Pinky Faraar (releasing March 19), Bunty aur Babli 2 (April 23), Shamshera (June 25), Jayeshbhai Jordaar (August 27), and Prithviraj (November 5). In its statement about the release dates, the production house said, “Yash Raj Films has locked its exciting slate of films for 2021 and the company is signalling its strong intent to bring audiences back to experience films on the big screen.”

The shooting for Pathan had started in November last year and is currently underway. Reportedly, John Abraham will play the role of the antagonist. The makers have reportedly picked Dubai as the epicenter of major fight scenes.
