Her first project in Hollywood – the action film ‘XXX: Return of Xander Cage’ in 2017. She was last seen on screen in ’83’.
Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are all set to star once again in the upcoming film ‘Pathaan’, a story of an Indian spy who can get into any system or circle given his stealth and chameleon-like abilities to merge with the world that he resides in.
The film is the first of Shah Rukh Khan’s three films after a hiatus of over four years for the actor. Earlier, he was seen in the 2018 movie ‘Zero’ which tanked badly at the box-office.
‘Pathaan’, produced by India’s premier studio conglomerate Yash Raj Films, will drop in theatres on January 25, 2023.
