Pathaan is a 2023 Indian Hindi-language action thriller film directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films. The fourth installment in the YRF Spy Universe, it stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham, alongside Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. Written by Shridhar Raghavan and Abbas Tyrewala from a story by Anand, the film is about Pathaan, an exiled RAW agent, who must work with ISI agent Rubina to take down Jim, a former RAW agent-turned-traitor, who is planning to spread a deadly lab-generated virus across India.
Principal photography for Pathaan began in November 2020 in Mumbai. The film was shot over various locations in India , Afghanistan , Spain , UAE , Turkey , Russia , Italy and France. Two songs were composed by the duo Vishal–Shekhar, while Sanchit Balhara and Ankit Balhara provided the score. The music video of one song, “Besharam Rang”, featured Padukone in a saffron bikini, which led to protests by right-wing Hindutva groups and an attempt to boycott the film; however, the Central Board of Film Certification cleared the film for exhibition after certain edits were made to the song sequence. The film was made on an estimated production budget of ₹225 crore (US$28 million) with a further ₹15 crore (US$1.9 million) spent on print and advertising. Against norm, pre-release publicity was limited with no media interactions or public events.
Pathaan was released in India on 25 January 2023, coinciding with the Republic Day weekend, in IMAX, 4DX and standard formats along with dubbed versions in Tamil and Telugu. It received positive reviews from critics and broke several Indian box-office records, including the biggest opening day and opening weekend for a Hindi film. Further opening records were set in overseas markets. Grossing ₹877.45 crore (US$110 million) worldwide, Pathaan ranks as the highest-grossing Hindi film of 2023, the fourth-highest-grossing Hindi film and seventh-highest-grossing Indian film of all time, as well as the highest-grossing of Khan’s career and Yash Raj Films’ releases.
Yash Raj Films, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham officially announced Pathaan on 2 March 2022 on their social media accounts, revealing the release date with a first look teaser. It was previously teased by other cast members, including Salman Khan and Vishal Dadlani, on various occasions before. Dadlani announced the film on Twitter, stating, “No number from the past matters, no number in the future is too big. The whole world is waiting for Shahrukh, more importantly, we’re all working on a kickass film with great songs.” This film is YRF’s first Dolby Cinema.
