The team has also been filming the project outside India in Spain.

While Shah Rukh Khan returns after a long gap, the movie also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, and a reported cameo from Salman Khan. Pathan is the fourth instalment in YRF’s spy universe. Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) and War (2019) are the other movies.
