Megastar Shah Rukh Khan is reprising his role as an action hero. However, not in the way that his fans had anticipated. Shah Rukh has uploaded a video on his social media accounts in anticipation of his upcoming venture Pathan, which will be an action film. The video is a commercial for a beverage brand, and it has Shah Rukh fighting bad guys from atop and later inside the train. It all starts with Shah Rukh watching his own film in a cinema. It then cuts to the movie, where he beats up several villains in his long hair and dark suit. “Naam toh suna hoga meri jaan? Isko soft nahi kehte, kehtey hai toofan” (You must know my name. I am not soft, but a storm), Shah Rukh commented on Instagram after sharing the video.
The video piqued the interest of Shah Rukh’s fans. One wrote, “Missed you so much”. “Sir, please announce Pathan now.” (Sir, please announce Pathan now). Another comment said, “Can’t wait to see you on the big screen.”
Shah Rukh was last seen on screen in Aanand L Rai’s Zeroin 2018. The film also featured Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, however, it did not perform well at the box office. Since then, Shah Rukh has remained silent about his next project. He is yet to make an official announcement about Pathan, which will be directed by Siddharth Anand, who previously directed War. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham will also appear in the new film.
