'Bollywood Baadshah' Shah Rukh Khan will be kicking off 2023 with the highly-anticipated Pathaan, which also marks his big comeback to the silver screens after five years when he was last seen in Zero released in 2018. The upcoming action film has been billed to be an out-and-out mass entertainer from the start and a high-octane teaser released sometime back gave audiences a taste of the grand treat them in theatres. In that light, the highly-anticipated Pathaan trailer has now been released on Tuesday and shows us the big action feast to be witnessed on the big screen on January 25, with Shah Rukh Khan being joined by Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in some of the most intense sequences for an Indian film. 

The Pathaan trailer starts off by introducing John Abraham’s character, who is someone on a mission to destroy 'Bharat Maa'. Shah Rukh Khan then jumps in for the rescue to try and stop his contemporary from accomplishing what he sets out to do. We also see Deepika Padukone entering the scene and helping out SRK on his quest, while sporting short blonde hair, and thus giving us a hint that she might be playing the role of a spy in the film, with Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana as well appearing in crucial roles. There are plenty of hair-raising and eye-pleasing sequences in the Pathaan trailer that leave us convinced that the film is best suited to be watched in theatres. 

Pathaan is directed by Siddharth Anand under Aditya Chopra's Yash Raj Films banner and will be released in Hindi along with the dubbed versions in Tamil and Telugu in regular and IMAX formats. The film has been confirmed to be a part of the YRF Spy Universe and is coming out after blockbusters like Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), and War (2019), with Salman Khan also announced to reprising his role as Tiger in an extended cameo appearance.
