On Saturday morning, trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted a few updates on the film and wished Atlee and sent out his best wishes for the film’s success.
While this will be the first collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee, the filmmaker has made a mark with films like Bigil and Mersal.
SRK was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s Zero in 2018. The actor’s next Pathan will hopefully release in 2022.
