The trailer has been receiving a lot of appreciation from SRK fans and the film fraternity. The film is releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The Tamil version was released by actor Vijay, whose Varisu hit screens today. Thanking Vijay for the gesture, Shah Rukh Khan wrote on his social media handle,"Thank you my friend @actorvijay You are Thalapathy for this humble reason, let's meet for delicious feast soon. Mikka Nandri Nanba! Idhanala Dhaan Neenga Thalapathy koodiya viraivil oru arumaiyana virunthil santhipom. Love you (sic)."
Pathaan is a spy action entertainer directed by Siddharth Anand in which Shah Rukh will play the titular character, an undercover spy. The film stars Deepika Padukone as the leading lady and John Abraham as the baddie. The rest of the star cast includes Dimple Kapadia, Ashutosh Rana, Gautam Rode, Shaji Choudhary and Gavie Chahal. Salman Khan is said to be playing a cameo in the film.
The film has already been in the news for the song Besharam Rang, which right-wing groups claimed that it promoted obscenity. SRK's posters were burnt as a mark of protest and many even trended the Boycott Pathaan and Boycott Bollywood hashtag to express their displeasure. Many have called out the same and have termed the incidents as nothing but jingoism.
