Pathaan success spurs fresh Shah Rukh-Salman starrer from Yash Raj Films

Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, Pathaan also had the presence of Salman Khan.

Though a saffron backlash is raging, Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has managed to douse all hate and has been going great guns. The film’s success has proved to be successful in busting the fringe elements’ call for boycott in a major manner. The film has already crossed many milestones in terms of audience numbers and revenue collected in a few days.

The cast was one of the reasons that Pathaan made the cash registers tingling. Box office success came by way of its stellar star cast and it looks like more such ventures would be planned as new releases. Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, Pathaan also had the presence of Salman Khan, who continues to be an audience favourite for fans from all across the world.

Salman-SRK combo yet again

Riding on this aspect, Yash Raj Films is said to be lining up a film with the two major Khans in the actors’ line up. Salman Khan’s impactful cameo in Pathaan proved a world of good to Pathaan, and Yash Raj Films wants to do an encore with a new movie that will have Shah Rukh and Salman headlining the film.

The Bollywood production house is all excited about its next big screen release and that would be Salman Khan’s Tiger 3. The actor had appeared in an extended cameo in Pathaan as Tiger, making audience go wild with excitement.

The two actors had come together in full-length roles way back in Karan Arjun, which is talked about even today. Yash Raj Films knows well that audiences would love another SRK-Salman pairing on screen, and the belief has grown manifold after Pathaan’s huge success.

Pathaan vs Tiger from YRF

The new film in the pipeline will a two-superstar treat, with SRK and Salman Khan playing full length roles as heroes.

Post-Karan Arjun, a film with both the superstars had to wait for more than 30 years to be even thought of. But the makers would want to believe that it is never too late for such a venture to be shot and screened.

Going by web reports, Aditya Chopra is collaborating with writer Shridhar Raghavan for a film with the two stars playing alongside.

When the film happens, we need to expect a Pathaan versus Tiger sort of story, and that itself looks exciting. Let’s wait to see how the two superstar face-off would look like.
