Shah Rukh Khan Set to Return as Pathaan: Aditya Chopra Locks Pathaan 2 in YRF Spy Universe

In January 2023, Shah Rukh Khan donned his action avatar in the Aditya Chopra-produced YRF Spy Universe Film, “Pathaan,” directed by Siddharth Anand. The film, featuring SRK in the titular role alongside Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, shattered box office records, emerging as the top-grossing Hindi film of all time, surpassing even the lifetime collections of “Bahubali 2.”

With “Pathaan” ending on a promising note of Shah Rukh Khan returning as the stylish spy, forming a new team to combat future evils, Pinkvilla has exclusively learned that Aditya Chopra has greenlit “Pathaan 2” as the eighth installment of his meticulously crafted spy universe.

A source close to the development revealed, “Pathaan 2 will predate Tiger vs Pathaan and will set up the clash of two cinematic legends on the big screen. Shah Rukh Khan as Pathaan has resonated with audiences, and there is a demand to see more of SRK in the spy avatar.”

Over the past year, Aditya Chopra and his team have meticulously crafted the script of “Pathaan 2.” It is being designed as the tentpole spy film of the universe, setting the stage for larger conflicts in the future. P2 sets the groundwork for the epic battle between Tiger and Pathaan (Tiger vs Pathaan) in the future timeline.

Discussions are underway to commence filming for “Pathaan 2” by December 2024. The film will be the eighth installment of the YRF Spy Universe, following the successful lineage of “Ek Tha Tiger,” “Tiger Zinda Hai,” “War,” “Pathaan,” “Tiger 3,” “War 2,” and the yet-untitled Alia Bhatt film.

“Pathaan” stands as the highest-grossing film of the YRF Spy Universe, with All India Nett Collections exceeding Rs 540 crore and a global gross surpassing Rs 1000 crore. It broke several norms to emerge as a historic milestone in Hindi Cinema, marking the resurgence of Bollywood in the post-pandemic era.

As YRF aims to elevate the stakes further with “Pathaan 2,” the anticipation among fans and cinephiles is palpable. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates on this exciting saga of espionage and intrigue.
