It’s a big day for everyone involved with the magnum opus Pathaan – the high-octane thriller starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham that releases today. The film is set to have one of the greatest openings of all time, and fans can’t wait to see the magic on screen.
However, according to a Times Now report, the film has already been released in a wet squib of sorts on sites like Filmyzilla and Filmy4wap, making room for more piracy.
Pathaan film review
Pathaan creators have urged audiences to only watch the film on the big screen and not record video in theaters. In a previous tweet, Yash Raj Films wrote: “Everything ready for the greatest action extravaganza? A humble request to everyone not to record videos, share them online and not post spoilers. Experience Pathaan only in cinemas.”
In a record Pathaan has released in 100 countries, the highest of any Indian film of all time! Nelson D’Souza, Vice President, International Distribution, commented, “Pathaan is the most widely distributed overseas YRF film release to date. In fact, it is the most widely viewed release for an Indian film in the world! Shah Rukh Khan is undoubtedly the biggest international superstar and given the hype the film is generating there is an unprecedented demand for the release of Pathaan around the world.”
He adds: “This is a very encouraging sign, especially after the pandemic, keeping in mind the revival of the theater business. Pathaan is published in over 100 countries. It is the fourth film in the YRF spy universe and it is amazing to see our precious franchise grow in strength with each film. We’re very optimistic about Pathaan and what it can gather from the overseas territories. It should be able to put the theatrical distribution business in a good mood again at the beginning of the year.”
