Stating that her presence in the movie makes it all the more exciting, director Siddharth Anand is thrilled to share her first look. “Deepika has a fierce role that will blow everyone’s mind,” he promises. While this is her fourth film opposite SRK, their leaked pictures from Mallorcar in Spain, where they shot an extensive chunk of 'Pathaan', have garnered abundant attention. Having directed the actor in her second Bollywood release, 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' (2008), Siddharth adds, “I have seen her evolve over the years into a completely different and hungry actor. Her first look in 'Pathaan' hints at her magnetic aura that people will be witness to.” Eagerly waiting to unveil more of her character later, he sums up saying, “There is no bigger star than Deepika in India today.”
