New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathaan’ is all set to hit theatres on January 25. The high octane action thriller is one of the most anticipated releases of the year that marks SRK’s return to the silver screen after a hiatus of four years.
Makers of the film already have the audience on the edge of their seats by releasing the power-packed trailer of the action thriller.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who plays a spy in the upcoming release ‘Pathaan’, may have been idolised as the king of romance by his countless fans across the globe, but the actor personally loves the action genre and always wanted to be an action hero.
The ‘King’, as he is known, is returning to the silver screen after a wait of four long years, and his fans are certainly waiting with bated breath to watch him in action on screen.
Talking about his character in ‘Pathaan’, the superstar shared: “Pathaan is an easy guy, doing a lot of tough things and I think he’s naughty, he’s tough but doesn’t wear it on his sleeve. He’s trusting. He’s honest and I think he very single-mindedly thinks of India as his mother.”
Four years of anticipation will finally be over next week. ‘Pathaan’ will open in theatres on January 25, 2023, and Shah Rukh Khan fans are losing their minds over it. In the film directed by Siddharth Anand, Deepika Padukone portrays the female protagonist, while John Abraham plays the primary antagonist.
‘Pathaan’ was filmed on location in a wide variety of international locations, including India, Afghanistan, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Russia, Italy, and France.
Meanwhile, the first song of the film, ‘Besharam Rang’ drew a lot of controversy because of the saffron colour bikini sported by Deepika in the song. The Hindutva activists across the country have raised objections to the dance sequence where Shah Rukh Khan is wearing a green colour shirt and Deepika is flaunting a saffron outfit.
Directed by Sidharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj films, it will release in three different languages: Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
