With Pathaan, the actor Shah Rukh Khan will make his first appearance on the big screens in more than four years. Shah Rukh talked about his co-stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in a new featurette for the film.

He expressed his hope that audiences watch Pathaan on the big screen two or three times before watching it online. He described it as a good movie that was done with love by many creative people. He defined his role as a easy person who very single-mindedly thinks of India as his mother.

John Abraham, an experienced action star, was a fortunate addition to the cast, according to Shah Rukh, since he would provide insightful knowledge to the fight scenes. In the movie, John plays the antagonist, and Shah Rukh admitted that he was afraid to fight John because he wasn't sure if it would appear plausible for a star of SRK's status to get beaten up on camera. John told Shah Rukh that he was a "national treasure" and promised not to harm him. However, King Khan encouraged him to.

SRK said, “It took a lot of convincing to tell him that it’s okay, you can punch me, I won’t get hurt. But he’s so proficient in action, he really helped me look nicer, in body language. Many a times, he would say, ‘Shah bhai, do it like this’. It was very kind of him. If you’re doing an action film, and you have John with you, there’s a lot to learn. Being the star that he is, and the respect that he has for me, the way the film has gone smoothly, it’s a big challenge for someone like him. I hope, genuinely, that when Pathaan comes out, the most liked character is John’s. I really wish for this. Because it takes a lot of guts to do what he has done, as an actor, as a star.”

Shah Rukh's first movie of 2023 is Pathaan, and he will next appear in Atlee's Jawan and Rajkumar Hirani's Dunki. The Siddharth Anand-directed movie is a part of Yash Raj Films' spy franchise, which also includes the War and Tiger films. On January 25, Pathaan will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
