Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara have begun filming in Pune for Tamil film director Atlee's Pan-India film. According to reports, the producers have planned a 10-day shoot in the city, after which they will relocate to Mumbai's film city. The film is reportedly being made on a large scale.
According to reports, South star Priyamani will also play an essential role in the film and will join SRK and Nayanthara in Pune for the shoot. Khan will play two roles in the film, with Nayanthara playing the female lead. The yet-untitled film is being planned as a massive pan-India production involving actors from the North and South.
Following the completion of this brief schedule, SRK will go on to shoot for director Raju Hirani's next film, while Atlee will continue to work with the rest of the cast. The young filmmaker is best known for his 2017 Tamil thriller 'Mersal,' which starred Vijay, Samantha, Nithya Menen, and Kajal Aggarwal.
The film will be shot in a variety of locations over 6 to 7 months. It also stars Sanya Malhotra and Sunil Grover, and according to some reports, Rana Daggubati will play a negative character.
