Yash Raj Films and Shah Rukh Khan have just dropped a teaser of Pathaan featuring John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. Shah Rukh Khan wrote in the caption, “I know it’s late… But remember the date… Pathaan time starts now…See you in cinemas on January 25th, 2023. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Celebrate #Pathaan with #YRF50 only at a big screen near you.”

About The Pathaan Teaser

In the teaser, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham introduce Shah Rukh’s character as someone who was never named and decided to adopt India as his religion and then made it his life’s goal to protect the country.

As the camera pans, it shows John talking about a man, saying, “In our country, we keep our name in respect to our religion or caste, but he had none of the options.”

In the teaser, Deepika seems to be observing a warfare scenario, with blasts and helicopters crashing in the backdrop. She says, “He didn’t even have anyone to keep his name, and the only thing he had is this one country: India.”

Then comes in SRK, in blurry visuals, saying, “So, he considered India as his religion (Dharma), and protecting the country his work (Karma). The ones who don’t have a name, have their name with the country’s name. How and why this name was monikered, to know this all, you will have to wait a little. We will meet soon to Pathan.”

Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra, is set to release on the Republic Day weekend, that is on January 25th, 2023.

Shah Rukh Khan’s last big screen release was in 2018, with Zero. More recently, his production banner Red Chillies Entertainment has backed projects like Class of 83, Love Hostel, and Bob Biswas.

Deepika, who was last seen in the Amazon Prime release Gehraiyaan, has Fighter, a film with Prabhas, and the remake of The Intern lined up for release.
