Given the decibel level that Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham starrer ‘Pathaan’ has, it has definitely become one of the most-awaited films to hit the box office post-pandemic!

Aditya Chopra and ace director Siddharth Anand are relentlessly working to make ‘Pathaan’ India’s biggest action spectacle. The visually spectacular Yash Raj Films’ action extravaganza, is part of Aditya Chopra’s ambitious spy universe and has the biggest superstars of the country starring in a high-octane spy thriller.

It’s now been revealed that the film has a huge Tom Cruise connect that is going to blow the minds of every SRK fan.

Siddharth reveals: “When one sets out to make the spectacle action film of India with one of the all time biggest heroes of our country, Shah Rukh Khan, you need to have a champion team that is unified in the vision.

“Thankfully we got an A-team that came together to push the visual envelope with ‘Pathaan’ and I was delighted to have someone like Casey O’Neill, who has extensively worked with Tom Cruise, to be by our side.”

Emmy award-nominated Casey, regarded as one of the best action directors in Hollywood, is the brain behind Tom Cruise’s death-defying stunts in films like ‘Jack Reacher’, ‘Mission Impossible’ series films, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, and has also worked with Marvel Studios and Steven Spielberg to name a few!

About Casey, Siddharth further adds: “He brings in a wealth of experience and he immediately bought into the idea of creating edge of the seat action for ‘Pathaan’ that could match what he’s done back home in Hollywood.

“What Casey has created in this film, is simply mind-boggling. You will have to see it for that, because we aren’t going to disclose any details from the film till it releases in theatres in the new year.”

Casey is also a seven-time Screen Actors Guild awards nominee and three-time Taurus World Stunt Awards Winner for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. His skills have also earned him membership to the Academy of motion picture arts and sciences and membership to the elite Brand X Action Specialists.

Pathaan is set to release on 25th January 2023.
