Director Siddharth Anand, who celebrated his birthday, is all about “living and breathing” ‘Pathaan’, his upcoming film with Shah Rukh Khan.

‘Pathaan’, touted to be a visual spectacle, is a part of Yash Raj Films’ spy universe and also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.

“It is a very special birthday for me this year as I’m working on one of the most special films of my career, ‘Pathaan’. I’m living and breathing ‘Pathaan’ every moment of my life and I want to give audiences an experience that is spectacular and like no other.”

The director also spoke about how thrilled he was to garner such a positive reaction to the first looks.

“I’m thrilled with the unanimously positive response to every asset of the film that we have launched so far. Starting with the announcement video, to Shah Rukh Khan’s first look in the film, to us unveiling a glimpse of Deepika Padukone. We are fortunate that everything has been loved by audiences. What the audience thinks and feels is of utmost importance to us all and we are happy that Pathaan has started off on such a strong note with them.”

Khan and Padukone form one of the most loved on-screen pairings in Bollywood. The two have earlier worked together in films like ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Chennai Express’.

The two had shot a hugely mounted song in Mallorca as SRK was papped flaunting an eight-pack and Deepika her perfect bikini bod. Later, they headed to Cadiz and Jerez in Spain where they wrapped the schedule on March 27.

‘Pathaan’ produced by Adiyta Chopra under the banner of YRF, is set to release on January 25, 2023 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
