Take a look:
Pathaan stars superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who returns to the big screen after a gap of five years. Siddharth Anand, the film’s director, said Padukone has a “fierce role that will blow everyone’s mind”.
“Deepika Padukone is a massive, massive star and her presence in ‘Pathaan makes’ our film even more exciting and grand. No one has yet seen her look in Pathaan and we are thrilled to present a glimpse of her in our action spectacle,” the filmmaker said in a statement.
Anand, who first worked with Padukone in 2008’s Bachna Ae Haseeno, added her character exudes a “magnetic aura”. The actor-director duo are also collaborating on Fighter, another YRF production.
“Deepika is a rare actor with a pan Indian appeal like no other and having her in a film, looking the way she is, is a huge USP. We wanted to cast someone who has an appeal across gender and age and there is no bigger star in India today than Deepika Padukone,” he said.
Pathaan reunites Padukone with Khan with whom she featured in her Bollywood debut Om Shanti Om as well as hits Chennai Express and Happy New Year. It also stars John Abraham.
The film is scheduled to be released in theatres on January 25 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
