'ये वो बंधन है जो कभी टूट नहीं सकता! This is a friendship bond that cannot be broken ever.' 

Released in 2004, Swades is a 3-hour 30-minute drama about an Indian scientist working in NASA who comes back to his Indian roots and realizes that this is where he belongs. Swades came right on the heels of Lagaan as director Ashutosh Gowariker’s next film and it underperformed on the box office at the time. The film was praised for its magical music by AR Rahman himself and the wonderful lyrics of Javed Akhtar but perhaps this story was a little beyond its time. Nearly two decades later, Swades is known worldwide as one of the finest films to have come out of India and Shahrukh Khan’s filmography. Shahrukh Khan has had a gap of nearly three years from the silver screen and will be back with the most anticipated unannounced film called Pathan.
