Aditya Chopra and ace director Siddharth Anand worked relentlessly 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.

Siddharth said: “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.

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!
