Pathaan release date on OTT
Reports suggest that the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer will start streaming on Amazon Prime Video either in late March or early April. However, there is no official information regarding the OTT release date of the movie yet.
The Siddharth Anand-directed movie stars Shah Rukh Khan as Pathaan, a RAW field agent, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham as Jim, Dimple Kapadia, and Ashutosh Rana as Col. Sunil Luthra. Audiences will also get to see a cameo appearance by Salman Khan.
The music of Pathaan has been composed by the famous duo Vishal-Shekhar. However, the latest music release of the movie Jhoome Jo Pathaan has not been much liked by the netizens who have trolled and attacked Vishal-Shekhar over social media for writing the song.
Another controversy has also surrounded the movie wherein netizens and government officials were offended by Deepika Padukone for wearing a saffron colour bikini in the Besharam Rang song. The reason behind it is that the saffron colour of the bikini offends Hindu sensibilities. As a result, outraged fans demanded a boycott of Pathaan.
