Deepika Padukone plays a spy in Pathan and is paired opposite Shah Rukh Khan, who plays a spy with a license to kill, in the adrenaline pumping action entertainer. While Deepika looks drop-dead gorgeous in the songs of the film, which have become instant chartbusters. At the same time, she is also looking incredibly alive as a gun-toting spy in Pathan. Director Siddharth Anand revealed that Deepika has done an amazing solo action sequence in the film in which she fired the famous Gatling Gun.
Siddharth says, “There is nothing cooler or sexier than a woman wielding a mighty weapon on screen. I have always loved women doing action sequences and hence, when we cast Deepika Padukone in Pathan, we wanted to present her in her most violent form. A beautiful, gun-toting, femme fatale spy that people have never seen before.” He further added, “An action sequence in Pathan features Deepika wielding a Gatling gun and you have to see the sequence to believe that she is a real spy. How reasonable as an action superstar. She steals the show with this scene and I am sure people will applaud her whenever they see her action in Pathan.”
Pathan is part of Aditya Chopra’s ambitious Spy Universe and stars country’s biggest superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. Yash Raj Films’ adrenaline pumping film, Pathan, will release on January 25, 2023 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The hype about Pathan is unmatched. Yash Raj Films has so far released all the assets of the film which have proved to be super-hits from the teaser itself. Two songs – Besharam Rang, Jhoome Jo Pathan – and the recently released trailer have become the cause of an internet meltdown.
