Fans are eagerly waiting for superstar Shah Rukh Khan to take the big screen by storm after a short sabbatical. The actor was last seen in Aanand L Rai's 2018 film Zero. While there is an air of mystery about King Khan's upcoming film, speculations are rife that the Badshah of Bollywood will return to screen with Siddharth Anand's espionage thriller Pathan, which also reportedly stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone.
While the makers are tight-lipped about this film and are yet to make an announcement, Deepika Padukone finally let the cat out of the bag in an interview with Femina magazine. The actress confirmed that she is a part of Pathan while talking about her line-up of upcoming projects.

Deepika Padukone On Being Versatile On Screen
Talking about how she has never stereotyped herself in films, Femina quoted Deepika as saying, "That is because of the fear of being typecast, and I give myself credit for choosing the right scripts. I also give credit to the writers and directors who can see me in such a diverse way. Whether it's Imtiaz (Ali), and Homi (Adajania), who can see me in roles in Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail, or someone like Shoojit (Sircar) who can see me in a Piku, and then you have someone like a (Sanjay) Bhansali who can see me in Padmaavat, there is Rohit Shetty who cast me in an outright comedy film. I give my writers and directors credit for seeing me in such varied ways and giving me opportunities. It truly is an actor's dream, and I couldn't have asked for more."
