After quite a break, Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone could be seen sharing the screen space soon as latest report claims that the 'Chhapaak' actress has been offered a role in SRK's upcoming film titled 'Jawan'. This means that the on-screen couple will be sharing the silver screen in 2023 more than once.
However, this one is reportedly a cameo performance. The 'Om Shanti Om' stars are already a part of 'Pathaan' along with John Abraham, which is slated to release on January 25 next year.

According to Pinkvilla, a source close to the film has revealed, "Deepika has been in talks with SRK and Atlee for a while now and she is poised to make a short yet important appearance in the film. She has agreed in principle though the paperwork still remains." The source also added that Deepika met SRK and filmmaker Atlee while she was shooting for one of her upcoming projects in Hyderabad.
"Deepika was shooting for her ambitious film, Project K in Hyderabad. Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee met the actress and even discussed the dynamics of her character and the shoot dates. Everything should be on paper in a fortnight," the source was quoted as saying.
