Shah Rukh Khan’s new look goes viral, fans speculate Atlee’s film is in making

Shah Rukh Khan was spotted filming for a new movie in Mumbai. As soon as the photos went viral online fans started speculating on the project the actor was working on. Many believe that the actor has begun filming for Tamil filmmaker Atlee’s next film, which is rumoured to be named Lion. However, no proof of that development has been provided yet.

Shah Rukh can be seen sitting in the driver’s seat of what appears to be a truck in a photo circulated on social media by fan clubs. The actor’s face is covered by a cloak, with just his eyes and hair visible. There are also some crew members in the front. Fan groups began spreading the image with the hashtag #Lion, a nod to Atlee’s next feature.

One fan shared on social media, “This is King Khan on the set of Lion for sure.” one posted the picture on Instagram and wrote, “So it is confirmed that SRK has begun the shoot of Atlee sir’s Lion.” Several have claimed that Shah Rukh will feature in Atlee’s Lion, however, neither the actor nor the filmmaker has confirmed this.
SRK too sparked the speculation, as he tweeted that he was sitting with the filmmaker, discussing Vijay’s Beast on Tuesday evening.

“Sitting with @Atlee_dir who is as big a fan of @actorvijay as I am. Wishing the best for beast to the whole team…trailer looks meaner…. Leaner… stronger,” he wrote alongside Beast’s trailer. This added fule to the fire and led fans to speculate that they were discussing the film.

Photos of Shah Rukh filming in Pune last year also gave a hint that he was working on Atlee’s flick. Shah Rukh had posed with Pune Metro employees in all-black attire. He was also photographed signing autographs. Blurry photographs of the actor on the platform of the Pune metro station have also appeared on the internet.

But, first and foremost, Shah Rukh is slated to return to the big screen with the action-thriller drama Pathaan. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. Pathaan will be Shah Rukh’s first film in nearly four years. It will be released in theatres on January 25, 2023.
