Pathaan is one of the most-anticipated Hindi movies to come out in the West in a very long time. The film, a visually stunning action extravaganza from Yash Raj Films, is being hailed as one of the biggest action spectacles audiences have ever seen in theatres. It is a part of Aditya Chopra's ambitious spy universe and stars the biggest superstars of the nation: Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham.

In a video made by Yash Raj Films, director Siddharth Anand discusses the reasons why Pathaan has become the most anticipated movie in the world, as well as how SRK's comeback to the big screen after four years has boosted the film's enormous excitement.

The director said that being Shah Rukh's director comes with a lot of responsibility, which has grown since he took a break and his fans are now more excited and have higher expectations. As the movie nears its conclusion and is released, Siddharth is beginning to understand who and how big that fan following is. So that is an incredible feeling, and it's also exciting because they know that they have developed a movie that they hope people will enjoy and be proud of.

Siddharth talks about how great the chemistry between SRK and Deepika is in Pathaan. He says that this is because the two actors have been in so many movies together, all of which were huge hits. Their team worked arduously to show them in a novel way, as it became a challenge to discover how different they could appear.

Based on the success of their epic blockbusters Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express, and Happy New Year, SRK and Deepika are one of the most famous on-screen couples in Indian film history.

Sidharth went on to say that because DP and SRK look different in their films, their pairing will look fresh right away. So that's the strategy they employed, and it worked well. He believes the crowd is enthralled.

On January 25, 2023, the heart-pounding YRF film Pathaan will be released in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi. The teaser, the two songs (Besharam Rang and Jhoome Jo Pathaan), and the recently released trailer that has sparked an online meltdown have all been huge hits for the movie that YRF has so far released.
