Producer Yash Raj Films has revealed the highly anticipated first look for Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’.
The look is revealed in a motion poster, a popular Bollywood way of teasing the film, and features an armed Khan. The poster dropped on June 25, the 30th anniversary of Deewana (1992), Khan’s film debut.
“Pathaan” is directed by Siddharth Anand (“War”). “30 years of Shah Rukh Khan is a cinematic moment in its own right in the history of Indian cinema and we wanted to celebrate it with its millions upon millions of fans worldwide,” said Anand. “Today is Shah Rukh Khan’s day and we must tell the world that. This is Team ‘Pathaan’s way of thanking Shah Rukh for the countless memories and smiles he has bestowed on all of us on his incredible journey in cinema.”
“He’s the alpha male on a mission in this action spectacle that we hope will redefine the action genre in India,” added Anand. “When you have Shah Rukh Khan in your film, along with superstars like Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, you have to reach for the stars in every department and I don’t think we’re going to live up to that promise with ‘Pathaan.’ ”
Khan and Padukone recently filmed a song sequence for Pathaan in Mallorca, leaked images of which went viral.
“Shah Rukh Khan’s look from ‘Pathaan’ was the most closely guarded imagery. Fans around the world have been desperate for his look to be revealed for a long, long time and we couldn’t think of a better day to show that to his fans and audience. I hope people and SRK fans love his look from ‘Pathaan’,” said Anand.
Pathaan is part of producer Aditya Chopra’s spy universe, which also includes the Tiger series, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, and War, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff.
Pathaan is scheduled to be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages on January 25, 2023 to coincide with the Indian holiday of Republic Day.

“30 years and not counting because your love and smiles were endless. To the continuation of #Pathaan,” Khan tweeted.
