Deepika Padukone is reuniting with Shah Rukh Khan in the upcoming Pathan. Though officially unannounced, the film resumed production back in June. The action-thriller is being directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by YRF Studios.

According to a source, Deepika will perform some high-octane action in the film and is training for the same.“Despite juggling multiple film shoots, Deepika doesn’t miss training for Pathan,” the source shared. “The workout includes a mix of functional training and Yoga. She dedicates 1.5 hours of her day towards workout for 6 days a week, keeping one day break for rejuvenation.”

Back in May, Deepika had tested positive for COVID-19, recovering from which she got on to her film schedules. “Getting back on sets after a severe bout of COVID-19, took a lot of emotional and physical strength for Deepika. She is still pushing to get her fitness and health completely back, and is fully committed to it,” the source adds.
