The much-awaited teaser of Pathaan released on Shah Rukh Khan's birthday and it is trending big time on social media. No surprises there. The film boasts of a super impressive star cast that includes SRK, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. However, SRK and Deepika's scenes together in the teaser eclipsed everything else (well, almost). Excited fans shared tweets dedicated to both the actors (more on that later). Pathaan marks SRK and Deepika Padukone's fourth project together. Deepika Padukone debuted in Bollywood opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 2007 film Om Shanti Om and then they co-starred Happy New Year and Chennai Express - all three movies did well at the box office.
First, check out the teaser of Pathaan here:
A fan posted a picture collage from Om Shanti Om, Happy New Year and Pathaan and wrote: "Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. 15 Years. And nothing has changed."
Fair to call it a Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone appreciation tweet.
"Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan. The superstars. The chemistry. The magic," read another tweet.
Nostalgia alert! A fan tweeted: "Anybody else feeling old seeing Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan together again."
"King and queen in action," wrote another fan.
Our thoughts exactly.
Other than Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, Pathaan also stars John Abraham. Directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, the film will release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on January 25, 2023.
