Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has begun shooting for his next collaboration with Tamil filmmaker Atlee along with Nayanthara.

According to sources, Shah Rukh Khan, who has been shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Pathan with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, has started shooting for the film in Pune.

According to indianexpress.com, “While SRK started working on the film last week, Nayanthara has joined in a couple of days ago. It is also being said that Telugu superstar Rana Dagubatti will play the antagonist in the film and he will join the cast later.”

Atlee masters the art of making double and triple role films, and this is him bringing the genre back to Bollywood with SRK. It is also worth pointing out that he has previously played double roles in Duplicate, Paheli, Don, and Fan.
