Shah Rukh Khan last appeared on film in Aanand L Rai's Zero, released in 2018. Though he hasn't been on the big screen since then, the actor is gearing up to make a huge comeback. Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee just announced the title of their film, Jawan, yesterday. Fans of Shah Rukh Khan will get treated to three films in 2023, rather than just one or two. In the movie Dunki, Pathaan, and Jawan, three characters named Dunki, Pathaan, and Jawan appear.
"With three films in a single year, a lot is riding on SRK right now," a well-placed industry insider said of Shah Rukh Khan's appearance in three films in a single year. All three films are big-budget Bollywood blockbusters with considerably higher budgets. Given this, Shah Rukh Khan alone appears to be worth upwards of Rs. 300 crore."
Pathaan, a Yash Raj Films production, will be the first film starring Shah Rukh Khan to enter theaters in January. Siddharth Anand's film, which also stars Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, and Emraan Hashmi with SRK, is set to kick off the year with a bang. The film, set in Mumbai, is described as an espionage thriller that will keep the viewer on edge. The Red Chillies production Jawan, directed by Atlee, will follow Pathaan. Jawan gets believed to be a pan-India picture that would get released in five languages.The film is a spectacular event picture featuring high-octane action sequences and a cast of Indian cinema's best actors.
