Shah Rukh Khan finally unveils ‘Pathaan’ release date with Deepika Padukone, John Abraham.

The over 3 years of wait has finally come to an end for Shah Rukh Khan fans today. The superstar has just announced his film Pathaan with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham with a kick ass teaser. Starring Shah Rukh in the lead, Pathan is directed by Siddharth Anand and backed by Yash Raj Films. The film has been the talk of the town since it went on floors. Shah Rukh’s look with long hair also had leaked on the internet from the sets and since then, fans were excited for King Khan’s return to the screen after Zero.

Shah Rukh Khan has finally unveiled the teaser of his upcoming film ‘Pathaan’. Sharing the teaser, he wrote, “I know it’s late… But remember the date… Pathaan time starts now…See you in cinemas on 25th January, 2023. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Celebrate #Pathaan with #YRF50 only at a big screen near you. @deepikapadukone |@TheJohnAbraham | #SiddharthAnand | @yrf” .

is strongly rumoured that Pathan will tie into a planned shared universe of spy films being produced by YRF. The shared universe also includes Salman Khan’s Tiger films, and the Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff-starrer War. Salman has been rumoured to have filmed a cameo for Pathan, and Shah Rukh is rumoured to have shot a similar cameo for the upcoming Tiger 3, which is also in production.

For Shah Rukh’s fans, the Pathan announcement has been a long time coming. The actor was last seen on screen in 2018 in the big-budget failure Zero. He went into a self-imposed sabbatical for a while, as he reworked his approach, and was more recently caught up in a controversy involving his son Aryan, further delaying his film work.

But he is said to have a packed slate. After Pathan, he will be seen in director Atlee’s new film, and will then collaborate for the first time with director Rajkumar Hirani.

Apart from ‘Pathaan’, Shah Rukh Khan will also be seen in Atlee’s next. He is also in talks with filmmakers Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK for a film and has also reportedly signed up for Rajkumar Hirani’s next.
