Shah Rukh Khan’s new Pathaan poster
In the new power-packed poster, Shah Rukh is seen holding onto a rifle as he flaunted a rugged avatar. Talking about King Khan’s look in Pathaan, Siddharth said that he wanted to make SRK the symbol of alpha and machismo. He said that SRK has sported countless looks that have shaped the pop culture of the country and inspired generations of youngsters to dress like the king of Bollywood. “His looks are associated with moments and memories of people and it won’t be wrong to say that he has made India more fashionable through his style in films. So, it was a task and a big challenge to craft a look that is extremely different for SRK, who is playing a daredevil spy in Pathaan!,” said Siddharth.

He added: “We wanted someone who is effortlessly cool and hot at the same time, through his look.” The first teaser of Pathaan was unveiled by the makers on Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday this year. It received a positive response from the audience.
