Siddharth Anand is the captain of ‘Pathan’ as he is the one who helmed the film which stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
On Wednesday, the teaser of Siddharth’s film was released to mark Shah Rukh Khan’s 57th birthday.
Speaking about his and the team’s decision to unveil the action-packed teaser on SRK’s birthday, Siddharth said, “Crazy for a glimpse of Pathan has been unprecedented. After a long, long time, there is insane buzz for a film that is genuine and organic. And it’s all because of the superstar status of this one man – Shah Rukh Khan. His fans, and we are talking millions of them, have been clamoring for just one look at him and his films. And thus, there couldn’t be a better day to put the teaser on Pathan than SRK’s birthday!”
He added, “Shah Rukh Khan has truly ruled the hearts and minds of audiences for decades and Pathan marks his return to the big screen after a gap of four long years. So even though we decided to surprise them all on his birthday, the pressure to deliver was immense.”
For Siddharth, Pathan is not just a movie, it’s a feeling. “We had to make a device that justified their wait to see something else Pathan as well as the fact that we’ve chosen his birthday to release the film’s first major asset! It had to be spectacular and memorable at the same time, and I think we’ve managed to make them very happy, given the incredible response we’ve seen for Pathan teaser. For us, Pathan is not just a film, it’s a feeling as we aim to make the biggest action spectacle with one of the biggest icons on screen that Indian cinema has ever seen. The teaser is just the beginning of fulfilling that promise on the big screen,” he shared.
‘Pathan’ will be released on January 25, 2023.
