Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Paathan’: Watch the first trailer

2 min read

Yash Raj Films released a trailer of the much anticipated Bollywood film “Paathan” starring superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padikone and John Abraham.

After a disappointing 2022 in which flops outnumbered hits among Hindi-language films, and which ended with the box office failure of Ranveer Singh’s “Circus,” on which Bollywood analysts pinned their revival hopes, “Pathan” is the first flag-bearer of 2023 for the underdogs. art for

“Pathan” is the comeback film for Khan, known as one of Bollywood’s best romantic stars. Some of his last few films have underperformed at the box office and his most recent release as a solo hero was “Zero” in 2018. He has since done cameos in “Lal Singh Chadda” and “Brahmastra Part One: Shiva”.

However, “Pathan” faced a firestorm after lawmakers from India’s ruling Hindu nationalist party, the BJP, expressed outrage over the film’s “Besharam Rang” song, saying the song’s costumes were “offensive” and that it was shot with “a dirty mentality”. This led to India’s Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) calling for some editing in the film. CBFC chair Prasoon Joshi said at the time: “Our culture and beliefs are solemn, complex and nuanced. And we have to be careful that it is not defined by trivialities that take the focus away from reality and truth.”

Directed by Siddharth Anand, “Pathan” is part of producer Aditya Chopra’s Spy Universe, which includes the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer “Tiger” franchise and Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer “War”.

“Pathan” is slated to release on January 25, 2023 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu-language and Imax versions.
