The two have become a successful on-screen pair given the reception of their films like ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Happy New Year’ and now with ‘Pathaan’ registering impressive numbers.

‘Pathaan’, which marked the return of Shah Rukh on the silver screen after four years, has been pulling in crowds since the day of its release with theatres running to packed houses.

Directed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Pathaan’ also stars John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana in key roles.

He has always appreciated Vaani’s work in her films.”

“So, when he decided to make the show, he spoke to Vaani to check her intent. To his delight, Vaani jumped at the brilliant concept and immediately said yes to collaborate with Gopi, who has become a talent to watch out for after his brilliant directorial debut in ‘Mardaaani 2’.”
