According to the reports, Shah Rukh Khan could be next seen in Yash Raj Films (YRF) production movie titles Pathan, however, neither the actor nor the production house has commented on the development.
The actor is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of his iconic film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
The KKR Fan anthem has been performed and composed by Indian rap singer Badshah. Along with the rapper, the anthem also features SRK himself and many KKR players.

Since we have to show our love to each other thoda door se this year, we created a fan anthem that captures the emotions of all our fans aptly and was even launched by them today.”
He added, “It was great fun to interact with the team today and we hope to keep making our fans proud,” during its virtual launch. Currently, Kolkata Knight Riders sit at 4th position with 10 points after 9 matches. Today they will face Royal Challengers Bangalore at 7:30 PM Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
