Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in his theatrical release, Pathaan, in January whereas Suhana Khan is part of the ensemble cast in Zoya Akhtar's The Archies, which is slated to be released on Netflix sometime next year.

Talking exclusively to Deadline, Shah Rukh said, “She never called me. I didn’t sign any films and I thought, ‘Maybe she’ll call me, maybe she’ll call me.’ So, I called her one day and said, ‘Listen, may I start working now?’ and she said, ‘Why aren’t you working?’ And I said, ‘I thought you’d call me and feel lonely in New York.’ ”

Suhana had moved from the UK to the US to pursue a film studies course from New York University. She shot for The Archies this year and made several glamourous appearances at multiple Diwali parties and film screenings in Mumbai in recent months. Shah Rukh even reacted to her Diwali pictures in a saree. As she shared her pictures on Instagram, he asked her if she had draped her saree by herself. She revealed it was her mom Gauri Khan, who had helped her in wearing the saree.

It is an action film that will be released in theatres worldwide on January 25 next year. In the same year, Shah Rukh will also be seen in another action film, Jawan.
