The release of Pathaan is getting ever closer and fans cannot wait. The Siddharth Anand direction action spy thriller stars Shah Rukh Khan in a dark hero avatar, John Abraham as his arch enemy and Deepika Padukone in a mysterious but very cool character.
The director says, “Deepika has a fierce role that will blow everyone’s mind. Deepika is a rare actor with a pan-Indian appeal like no other and having her in a film, looking the way she is, is a huge USP. We wanted to cast someone who has an appeal across gender and age, and there is no bigger star in India today than Deepika Padukone. We can’t wait to unveil her character in the film when it releases only on the big screen on Jan 25th, 2023.”
Siddharth Anand adds that Deepika will mesmerise everyone with her magnetic screen presence. “Deepika Padukone is up there with the biggest of superstars in the history of Hindi cinema. And we knew we had written a role for her in Pathaan that is not only breathtaking, but one that also justifies her superstardom. Pathaan will showcase her in probably her hottest and at the same time, her coolest self.”
About the exciting pairing of Shah Rukh and Deepika, Siddharth says, “The on-screen jodi of Deepika and Shah Rukh Khan is probably one of the biggest pairings that Indian cinema has ever seen, given their incredible successes in the past. And in Pathaan we have presented SRK and DP in a way that’s unprecedented.”
He adds, “They have electric chemistry with each other and they look just so hot together. It’s rare to find a pairing like theirs and their jodi is a huge USP for Pathaan.”
Pathaan is set to release in cinemas only on January 25, 2023 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu and we can’t wait to see it play out on the big screen!
