During a media interaction outside his Panvel farmhouse, where he is celebrating his 56th birthday, Khan said that Tiger 3 would release by December 2022 and teased the possibility of him and Shah Rukh teaming up for another project.

“We are coming together in Tiger and Pathan. Tiger 3 should be released by December 2022, before that Pathan will release. Then maybe both of us will come together,” the actor told reporters.

Tiger 3 is helmed by Maneesh Sharma of Fan (2015) and Band Baaja Baaraat (2010) fame, while Pathan is directed by War (2019) director Siddharth Anand. Pathan marks Shah Rukh Khan’s return to films after the 2018 romantic drama Zero, in which Salman Khan also had a cameo.
