Pathaan is Shah Rukh Khan's first lead role in four years and first hit in even longer. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film is set in the Yash Raj Spy Universe with Salman Khan's Tiger films and War, also helmed by Siddharth Anand and starring Hrithik Roshan. Pathaan, which has shattered several Bollywood box office records since releasing on January 24, stars Shah Rukh Khan as a RAW agent who teams up with Deepika Padukone's character against former-agent-turned-villain Jim, played by John Abraham.
