Shah Rukh Khan, actor and a true Bollywood legend, has just released the first trailer for his new film after four years of absence from the silver screen. And we are thrilled! Read on to know what makes Pathaan worth the hype!
Bollywood’s most renowned actor, Shah Rukh Khan, has returned. Even though the superstar just had a brief cameo in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, we have all missed seeing the superstar in a substantial part on the big screen. There are few actors who can rival Shah Rukh Khan’s stardom, and it would be no exaggeration to say that he enjoys an unparalleled following. Having waited eagerly for its release for over four years, we are excited to see Shah Rukh Khan comeback on the big screen after over four years. We can’t wait until Shah Rukh Khan’s dhamakedaar comeback film Pathaan hits the silver screen. The teaser has left us super-excited, and here are the top 5 reasons to look forward to it.
Shah Rukh Khan’s powerful presence onscreen.
Shah Rukh Khan never fails to be unforgettable, and makes a point of impressing on screen whether he’s starring or making a cameo. It wasn’t until we watched the teaser of his next film, Pathaan, that we realized how much we missed Shah Rukh Khan’s on-screen charisma and screen presence. The trailer begins with people asking themselves where Shah Rukh Khan is, and whether or not he is alive. Then, at some point, we see Shah Rukh Khan laughing maniacally and that one moment in the teaser was so funny! We see the action, see Deepika Padukone, and watch a face-off with John Abraham, who also enters at this point. Ultimately, it was a complete delight to see Shah Rukh Khan’s involvement with this movie, even if it’s just a few moments of the trailer. On the contrary, the teaser trailer has only increased our intrigue to see Shah Rukh in this particular film.
Shah Rukh Khan is back on the big screen after a long break
Shah Rukh Khan is one of the few actors whose popularity and stardom are untouched by his hits and flops. The star last appeared in Aanand L. Rai’s 2018 film Zero, which starred Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. A similar fate befell Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal before Zero. Despite flops in the past, the star’s success hasn’t diminished, and there is now an even greater anticipation for his next project than ever before. In the years following Zero, fans had awaited the superstar’s film announcement with great anticipation. In order to make Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan must have gone through many scripts before he selected it. Obviously, the expectations are sky-high!
Shah Rukh Khan’s on-screen persona
Could Shah Rukh Khan possibly return in an action role? Just take my money, please! Shah Rukh Khan may be one of the best when it comes to acting in romance dramas, but he’s also the best when it comes to starring in more action-packed movies. Some of his action movies include Don, Main Hoon Na, Asoka, Ra One, Karan Arjun, and Raees, among many others. His cameo in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra showed him guarding Vaanar Astra and he blew our minds with his action avatar. The teaser of Pathaan has already shown us some high-octane scenes starring Shah Rukh Khan, and we want more!
The massive transformation of Shah Rukh Khan
Do you recall the overwhelming public response to Shah Rukh Khan’s abs for his film Om Shanti Om in 2007? Ah yes, back then we went absolutely crazy over it. Shah Rukh Khan put on eight-pack abs for his film Pathaan, and the physical transformation wasn’t easy. The fitness trainer for SRK talked to Indian Express about his training routine for Pathaan, sharing that he’d been training for four years specifically for the film. The actor has clearly benefited from heavy lifting and strength training to build a sculpted, toned physique.
Deepika Padukone’s fourth onscreen collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan
As excited as we are about Pathaan’s visual spectacle, we’re even more excited about Deepika and Shah Rukh’s collaboration this time around! Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express, and Happy New Year were some of their previous films together. You’re probably already aware of how awesome their on-screen chemistry is after watching their movies together. Another reason why we can’t wait for Pathaan.
Yash Raj Films’ Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on January 25, 2023.
