Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham’s Pathaan is one of the most awaited films of the year. On the one hand, the whole Beshram Rang controversy over a saffron color bikini started its boycott trends. Meanwhile, on the other hand, the fans of SRK are very excited for the films. Amid this criticism of Besharam Rang song Shah Rukh Khan halid Deepika for pulling up the song very well.
SRK is staying away from the promotion of his upcoming film Pathaan. In the recent video by Yash Raj Films, Shah Rukh Khan was asked about Deepika’s character from Pathaan. He said, "You need someone of the stature of Deepika to be able to pull off a song sequence like Besharam Rang and then you know, to be able to do action, where she takes a guy and pulls him right over herself and beats him, she's tough enough to do that too. That kind of a combination could have only been achieved with someone like Deepika. It's quite a layered character for an action film heroine so to say.”
He further speaking about importance of Pathaan film in his life. He said. “I came to the film industry 32 years ago to be an action hero but I missed the boat because they made me a romantic hero instead. I've only wanted to be an action hero. I mean I love DDLJ and I love Rahul and Raj and all these good sweet boys but I always thought I was an action hero, so for me, it is my dream come true.”
Speaking of the Pathaan, it marks Shah Rukh Khan’s return to the big screen in over four years. The action thriller also stars John Abraham and is directed by Siddharth Aanand. The film is scheduled to be released in theatres on January 25, 2023. It will be released in Tamil and Telugu dubbed versions apart from Hindi.
