Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have given their approval to the script for ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan.’
This contradicts a previous media report suggesting that Aditya Chopra was planning a joint script narration session for both Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
In reality, the script for ‘Tiger vs Pathaan’ was presented to the two superstars separately in meetings that took place over a month ago. The film’s production team will begin preparations in November with shooting scheduled to commence in March next year.
An insider from the industry shared, “The script for ‘Tiger vs Pathaan’ has been finalized after both Hindi cinema giants expressed their endorsement. This film is a significant milestone as it brings together the two iconic figures of Bollywood for a full-fledged movie.”
The source added, “Before committing, they needed to genuinely appreciate the script and be convinced that it could meet the high expectations of their long-awaited on-screen reunion. Aditya Chopra personally met with SRK and Salman and presented the film’s narrative to them. Both superstars were captivated by the story, and now the film is set to go into production in March.”
Directed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Tiger vs Pathaan’ is a part of the YRF Spy Universe, which began with the ‘Tiger’ franchise, featuring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, starting with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai,’ followed by ‘War,’ starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, and ‘Pathaan,’ featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham.
The next installment in the spy universe is ‘Tiger 3,’ scheduled for release in cinemas this November during the Diwali festival holiday.
