Shah Rukh Khan Returns to the Silver Screen in First ‘Pathaan’ Teaser Alongside John Abraham and Deepika Padukone

Yash Raj Films has finally shared the first official teaser for the highly-anticipated spy-thriller, Pathaan, as part of their date announcement video.

The first teaser for Pathaan released on Wednesday (2 March) has been filmed purely for a date announcement video and features no actual film footage.

Following Abraham and Padukone’s monologue, Khan narrates the remainder of the trailer in a voiceover before revealing only a delineation of himself amid an incendiary backdrop.

Taking to social media, the makers released the date announcement video alongside the caption: “Make. Some. Noise! PATHAAN is here,” confirming the film will release in cinemas on 25 January, 2023.

As part of King Khan’s quick Q&A session ‘#AskSRK’ on Twitter, fans asked the Bollywood megastar how it feels to return to the silver screen after a deeply-felt hiatus:
