In just five months, fans will get to see Yash Raj Films’ highly anticipated action-packed film Pathaan! Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham. In a cool move and to ramp up the excitement, many details of this exciting film were kept under wraps, then they surprised people with a sneak peek posters. First, there was the internet-breaking look at Shah Rukh Khan, then a glimpse of Deepika Padukone, and now we present John Abraham in his super slick villain avatar.
Siddharth says, “Every announcement of Pathaan is like revealing a piece of an epic puzzle in front of the curious eyes of the fans and audiences, leading right up to our release day. We aspire for every asset of Pathaan to be a big talking point mainly because we, fortunately, have the content to create that buzz.”
About his decision to cast John as the villain, Sid says, “John Abraham is THE antagonist, THE villain of Pathaan. And I have always believed in the fact that the villain’s projection should be as big, if not bigger than that of the hero’s. Only when the villain is massive can the tussle between them be spectacular. And we have an extraordinary battle when SRK takes on John! We wanted to present John in a super slick avatar.”
The director says the first looks are teasing people into the world of Pathaan! He says, “The first looks of SRK, Deepika Padukone, and now John, truly represent the zone we want the audiences to view the film in. People have now just got a taste of the world of Pathaan. This truly is just the tip of the iceberg, and I can assure you that nothing can prepare you for the action spectacle that is coming your way.”
Pathaan is set to release on Jan 25, 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu and we can’t wait!
