After a long break, Shah Rukh Khan is gearing up to return to theatres with not just one but three films. In 2020, he kickstarted the shoot of his comeback film titled Pathan. Now, he dived into the world of South filmmaker Atlee Kumar's yet-to-be-titled thriller. Atlee's film is being shot in Pune and the first schedule will reportedly wrap up after 10 days. Before heading to Europe for the international schedule of Pathan, Shah turned his attention to his maiden collaboration with Atlee.
Now, on Saturday, pictures of Shah Rukh from a metro station in Pune went viral on social media. He can be seen shooting for Atlee's thriller with his leading lady Nayanthara. According to social media buzz, the actors were filming a metro train hijack scene. In the pictures, Shah Rukh looked superfit in black. As per reports, the film is tentatively titled Jawaan.
