Deepika Padukone’s first look of Pathaan was unveiled yesterday. The wait is finally over for those who were keen to see DP’s new look in the upcoming movie. The second poster of Pathaan helmed by Siddharth Anand displayed Deepika as a fiery intense character holding a pistol right against the target.
The motion poster of Deepika’s first look that was unveiled yesterday opens up with the camera focused on a bullet fired from a pistol. As the frame turns we see an intense look of her holding the pistol against the target. The actioner flick is slated to release on 25th January 2023 in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil.
Talking about Deepika in Pathaan, director Siddharth Anand said, “I have worked with her very early in her career and have seen her evolve over the years into a completely different and hungry actor. The first look of Deepika Padukone in Pathaan hints at her magnetic aura that people will be a witness to.”
Anand is also directing Deepika’s next film Fighter with Hrithik Roshan. According to him, the Om Shanti Om actress is a pan-India superstar, and having her in Pathaan is the biggest USP. The filmmaker said, “Deepika is a rare actor with a pan-Indian appeal like no other and having her in a film, looking the way she is, is a huge USP. We wanted to cast someone who has an appeal across gender and age and there is no bigger star in India today than Deepika Padukone.”
Earlier, Anand also spoke about Pathaan sharing his idea of making it the biggest event film in India. He said: “As a director, I strive to make every film of mine a bigger experience for the audience than my last film and I have a personal ambition to make Pathaan a film that is at par with any film made anywhere in the world.”
Pathan is much-awaited espionage actioner flick starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham. Siddharth Anand’s directorial is produced under the banners of Yash Raj Films. It is slated to release next year around Republic Day on 25th January 2023.
