Shah Rukh Khan’s return to the big screen after five years is being highly anticipated by his fans, and the announcement video of Pathaan piqued their interest further. The film’s director Siddharth Anand has also announced that Pathaan is “designed to be the biggest action spectacle from the Hindi film industry,” as per Indian Express.
Talking about Shah Rukh, Siddharth said in a statement, “We have the most-loved superstar of our generation with us. It is an honour and a responsibility for us. So, we can’t make a misstep at any point. We ensured that Pathaan’s date announcement video gave a bang for the buck to the audience.”
The announcement video features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in all their glory but viewers only get to hear Shah Rukh’s voice and catch a silhouette of him. His look from the film is yet to be shared.
Siddharth added that with such big names in the cast, there is “pressure to deliver a cracking product,” adding, “Deepika’s addition makes the film more exciting as the duo have delivered blockbusters in the past. Plus, we have John, who is undisputed in action. So, there is pressure to deliver a cracking product. I love the pressure and the anticipation.”
Shah Rukh, John and Deepika are presently in Spain shooting for the YRF film. In a recent Instagram live, Ranveer Singh had shared that Deepika is shooting for a song with her co-stars in the European country.
Pathaan is scheduled to release on January 25, 2023.
