It came as a big unexpected surprise on Tuesday, January 10, when 'Thalapathy' Vijay released the Tamil trailer of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan.

Vijay's tweet has come as a huge surprise for fans considering he doesn't frequent social media often.

Releasing in regular and IMAX formats, Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham and has been directed by Siddharth Anand under Aditya Chopra's Yash Raj Films banner.

Vijay, on the other hand, will be seen in Varisu opening in cinemas worldwide on January 11 ahead of the Pongal festivities and has him sharing screen space with Rashmika Mandanna under Vamshi Paidipally's direction. The Tamil superstar is currently filming his upcoming next, the tentatively titled Thalapathy 67 with filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj, and is their big reunion after their 2021 box office blockbuster, Master
