'Pathaan': On Deepika's birthday, SRK drops her new look
Actor Deepika Padukone turned 37 on Thursday (January 5). On the occasion of her birthday, her Pathaan co-star Shah Rukh Khan had a special gift for his leading lady and her fans. Taking to his social media handles, Khan dropped a new poster of Padukone's look from the film. Meanwhile, Khan and Padukone-starrer film is inching closer to its theatrical release on January 25.
Why does this story matter?
- Shah Rukh Khan and Padukone have acted in at least three films, with Pathaan being their fourth collaboration. Padukone made her Bollywood debut opposite Khan in the 2007's film, Om Shanti Om. She then went on to act with him in Happy New Year and Chennai Express.
- Earlier, Khan had shared John Abraham's first look from Pathaan on his birthday in December.
Poster shows Padukone in an action avatar
Padukone is not new to the action genre. She has already done some thrilling sequences in XXX: Return of Xander Cage in 2017, opposite Vin Diesel. The new look of the actor from Pathaan brings back the old memories of Padukone from the Hollywood film. She is seen holding a pistol in her hand while bleeding from a couple of cuts on the face.
