The two will be seen playing RAW agents under Dimple Kapadia. “Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Films are pulling out all stops to ensure that Pathan will be Shah Rukh Khan’s biggest film ever. Now to live up to this, they are developing an entire spy universe that will see Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Shaji Chaudhary and Gautam Rode playing RAW agents being led by Dimple Kapadia,” said a source.
Talking about Shaji Chaudhary and Gautam Rode’s casting in Pathan, the source added, “Shaji’s character in Mirzapur as Maqbool has made an impact on the audience, and he also has the aura to pull off a RAW agent charisma. As for Gautam Rode, well he has been one of TV’s best looking and physically well-built individuals, not to mention that he has the skill as well. So it was not a very difficult decision to rope them in.”
“YRF and Aditya are creating a whole universe, so it is obvious that there will have to be multiple characters, and both Shaji and Gautam were perfect,” the source concluded.
Pathan is being directed by War fame Siddharth Anand, and the team plans to shoot the film till July 2021.
