the untitled film is yet to be announced

Indian actress Nayanthara will reportedly make her Bollywood debut opposite established actor Shah Rukh Khan.

The pair are supposedly taking on a project spearheaded by filmmaker Atlee, in a film that is yet to be titled.

News of the project has been circling for some time, and is still yet to be officially announced.

However, Nayanthara is reportedly all set to make her debut, and will collaborate with Atlee for the third time.

Although the untitled film is yet to be announced, reports suggest that Nayanthara has already signed up for the project.

The actress’ last appearance was in the Tamil comedy Mookuthi Amman. She also featured in Nizhal, and is preparing for Annaatthe alongside Rajinikanth and Keerthy Suresh.

She is also waiting on the release of Tamil thriller Netrikann, a remake of the Korean thriller Blind.

Although those behind Atlee’s film are yet to confirm anything, rumours suggest that the film’s team has already started the pre-production process.

Tamil director Atlee first hinted about the project with Nayanthara and Shah Rukh Khan back in 2019.

Just prior to the release of his last film Bigil, Atlee spoke about a potential collaboration with SRK.

When a fan asked the director if he would collaborate with SRK soon, he said:

“I have a huge amount of love and respect for SRK sir and he also loves my work.”

“Soon, hopefully, we will do something about it.”

SRK is busy shooting for his upcoming film Pathan, starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.

He has also recently celebrated the 29th anniversary of his debut film Deewana.

The actor took to social media to thank his fans for their continuous support over the years.

In a tweet from Thursday, June 24, 2021, he said:

“Been working. Just saw the ‘overwhelmed ness’ of the love of nearly 30 years you are showering on me here.

“Realised it’s more than half my life in the service of hoping to entertain you all.

“Will take time out tomorrow and share some love back personally.

“Thanks needed to feel loved…”

Netizens flocked to Twitter to praise SRK and congratulate him for his success.

One user said: “Love you sir!!”

Another wrote: “Khan saab, blessed to have been born in your time. Your love, your kindness and your movies have always inspired me and how!

“You are and always will be loved.”

A third said:

“Today is 25 of June, exactly 29 years ago today you @iamsrk made debut in Bollywood by movie Deewana and you proved that an outsider can rule Bollywood and rejoice the nation with hard work and dedication.

“Thank you Shah Rukh for making us happy for 29 years #29GoldenYearsofSRK”
