Siddharth Anand on Pathaan
Recently, filmmaker Siddharth Anand opened up about his experience working with superstar Shah Rukh Khan in 'Pathaan', which will hit the theatres on January 25. In a video released by Yash Raj Films, Siddharth talked about why Pathaan has become one of the most hyped film globally and how SRK's return to the cinemas after four years has added to the humongous buzz that the film is carrying.
"Directing SRK is a responsibility and it's even more greater now because of the break that he had taken and that has created immense expectations and excitement with his audience. I am realising now, towards the end of the film into the release of the film, what and how large that fan base is. So yeah, that is an amazing feeling and it's somewhere exciting because we know that we have hopefully made a film that they will be happy and proud of," he said.
In Pathaan, Shah Rukh portrays a gun-toting spy with a license to kill in the action-thriller film. The visually spectacular Yash Raj Films’ action extravaganza, Pathaan, is part of Aditya Chopra’s ambitious spy universe. According to reports, the upcoming film revolves around a RAW Agent codenamed Pathaan, who takes on an ominous villain who is hell-bent on ripping apart India's security apparatus.
