With Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan makes his cinematic comeback after four long years, and he says that he is finally able to fulfil a 32-year-old goal of being a pure action star on the big screen.

SRK says in a video released by the film's producers, Yash Raj Films: “I came to the film industry 32 years ago to be an action hero but I missed the boat because they made me a romantic hero instead. I've only wanted to be an action hero. I mean I love DDLJ and I love Rahul and Raj and all these good sweet boys but I always thought I was an action hero, so for me it is it's my dream come true.”

The superstar also revealed details about his character in Pathaan, he said “Pathaan is an easy guy, doing lot of tough things and I think he's naughty, he's tough but doesn't wear it on his sleeve. He's trusting. He's honest and I think he very single-mindedly thinks of India as his mother.”

In Pathaan, SRK is collaborating with the stunning Deepika Padukone. Given their epic hits Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express, and Happy New Year, he and Deepika are among the most prominent on-screen couples in Indian film history.

Aditya Chopra's ambitious spy world includes Pathaan, which stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham, three of the nation's top actors. On January 25, 2023, the heart-pounding YRF film Pathaan will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.

Pathaan is receiving extraordinary amounts of excitement. The teaser, the two songs - Besharam Rang and Jhoome Jo Pathaan -, and the recently released trailer that has sparked an online meltdown for the movie that YRF has so far produced!
