For filmmaker Yash Chopra’s yet-untitled directorial comeback, Shah Rukh Khan will once again play the character of an army offer. The actor was seen in uniform in the director’s last film, Veer Zaara (2004), where he played an air force officer.

About his latest outing, an insider close to the development of the project reveals, “There is a war sequence either between India and Pakistan or India and China that they are going to shoot in Ladakh with Shah Rukh.”

This would be the actor’s fourth stint as an army office. Shah Rukh started his career by playing an army officer in the hit TV series Fauji (1988). He later wore the uniform in Main Hoon Na (2004) and Veer-Zaara.

The makers are now also leaving on August 20 for a schedule in Ladakh and Kashmir. “It’s an eight-day schedule,” adds the source.

What is interesting though is that the makers also had to shoot a small sequence in Switzerland, but now will film it in Kashmir itself.

“A small sequence between Shah Rukh and Katrina will be shot in Kashmir,” says the insider.
The film also stars Anushka Sharma and will hit theatres during Diwali in November.

YRF remained unavailable for comments.
