30 Years of SRK: Shah Rukh Khan says Pathaan is the kind of film he 'wanted to do for 30 years'

Megastar Shah Rukh Khan completes 30 glorious years in the Indian film industry today as Deewana, which marked his debut on celluloid, released on 25th June 1992! Yash Raj Films celebrated this special moment in cinema and his incredible journey by unveiling SRK’s intensely guarded look from Pathaan through a motion poster! This move caught everyone by surprise because no one was prepared for this huge reveal and it created frenzy on the internet! After the release of the poster, the actor took to Instagram to do a rare live session and chat with fans around the world. In the virtual interaction, Shah Rukh Khan thanked the fans for wishing him on completing three decades in the film industry. The actor spoke about his forthcoming films, Pathaan and Jawan. During the chat, he revealed, “I just told them (Aditya and Siddharth) that I have not worked for a year or more, took a hiatus because I wasn’t enjoying the process of filmmaking, which is more important to me than the film itself. When we started shooting Pathaan, it was a lot of fun. It is an action film with wonderful co-actors Deepika Padukone, John Abraham and Ashutosh Rana among others. It is the kind of film I wanted to do for 30 years. I always thought of myself as somebody who can do some cool action stuff. So, I think my impression about Pathaan is that what I really wanted to do when I first came to Mumbai, hopefully I have achieved that in Pathaan as an actor.” He admitted that he wanted to be an action hero in his 20s but is enjoying the process at 56 too.  “I enjoyed it. Fun having to do action. It is a little late (referring to his age). At the age of 56, I am being macho and solid, trying to make it work. Siddharth and the whole action team has put in a lot of hard work. Hopefully, it will work,” he smiled.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) “I remember Siddharth narrating a lot of films to me. Unfortunately, we could not find the right time to collaborate for years. He had this title called Pathaan with him. And he would tell me that, ‘Sir, maine film ready kar li hai.’ One fine day, when we could not work on the two scripts he narrated, he sent me a sweet message, which read, ‘I have this title. I have not been able to get a film with you. Now, please take the title and make a film whenever you want,'” Shah Rukh Khan said revealing that Pathaan came back to him with a new script. “The film has had a long journey. And soon, you all will be able to see it,” he said. The hugely anticipated Pathaan, which is part of Aditya Chopra’s spy universe, has the biggest superstars of the country Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham. Pathaan is set to release on January 25, 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu!
