Shah Rukh Khan is all set to star in Pathan after almost two years of release of his last film Zero. For his upcoming drama film, SRK has reportedly made a deal with Yash Raj Productions, where he will be getting 45-percent of share in the profits of the film. According to a leading website, "Shah Rukh Khan and Adi are like brothers and seldom do they speak about the monetary terms before signing on for a film. It’s an unsaid rule that SRK will have a share in the profits of a YRF film and the tradition will continue with Pathan as well. The superstar has entered into a 45 percent profit sharing agreement with YRF, which means that for every Rs. 100 crore profit earned from the film, Shah Rukh Khan will make Rs. 45 crore rupees. The higher the profits, the higher will be his fees,” told the source.
"The entire world knows that Shah Rukh Khan is doing an action film produced by YRF, directed by Sid, co-starring John Abrah,am, and Deepika Padukone. An official announcement will be made at the right time and the team at the moment is in no hurry what-so-ever to announce the film. The concentration is to make a great film, as that would result in the content to make more noise than any announcements. Shah Rukh has loved the script and is damn confident that Pathan is not just an ideal comeback vehicle but also his biggest grosser," added the source. The shooting for Pathan has begin and SRK has been shooting in Mumbai. The film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
