Siddharth Anand on directing John as Villain
Elaborating on his decision to cast John Abraham as the villain in Pathaan, Siddharth says, "John Abraham is the antagonist, the villain of Pathaan. I have always believed that if the villain's projection is not bigger than the hero, then at least it should be equal to him. When the villain is dangerous, only then can the confrontation between them be spectacular. Shah Rukh and John clash here will be extraordinary! We wanted to present John in a super sleek avatar."

Releasing in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu."
