But, both leading lady Deepika Padukone and antagonist John Abraham gave the grand event a miss, due to their work commitments. However, the entire cast and crew members of Pathaan are expected to be at the other promotional events which will be held in Mumbai, Delhi, and other major Indian cities. Ahead of the release, the makers are also expected to reveal more exciting promo videos, including the character intros of the three leading characters. 

Siddharth Anand about Pathaan

Meanwhile, in the latest video shared by the YRF Instagram handle, director Siddharth Anand opened up on his ambitious project. According to the talented filmmaker, Pathaan will be a high-octane action film that will have some brutal action sequences featuring leading man Shah Rukh Khan and the main antagonist John Abraham. The director remarked that the duo's face-off sequences will be the biggest highlights of the film.

However, Siddharth Anand also added that leading lady Deepika Padukone will also perform an equally important part in the film. He also added that the film will have lots of bike stunts, fight sequences on the train top, and electrifying jujitsu stunts.
