Pathaan with Shah Rukh Khan airs March 22 on Amazon Prime Video

Led by Shah Rukh Khan Pathan will soon be available for online streaming. In a tweet, Amazon Prime Video confirmed that the action-packed Bollywood blockbuster will be available to stream on the platform, starting Wednesday, March 22, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film hits digital home media 56 days after its theatrical premiere on January 25, and the release may feature deleted scenes. Pathaan marks Khan’s return to mainstream Bollywood in four years and is the highest-grossing film of his career.

Pathan reportedly collected $112.3 million (about Rs. 928 crore) at the worldwide box office, crossing the Rs. 100 crore mark on opening day. He then added additional Rs. 100 crore every day to generate over Rs. 400 crore in the four days since its release, becoming the fastest Hindi film to manage the feat. As reported by Bollywood Hungama, director Siddharth Anand recently revealed in an interview that the upcoming OTT release of Pathan may include a deleted scene, which serves as an origin story for the character — more specifically, a question about their religion. Director Anand noted that Pathaan’s love for his country is the central theme here, with writers Abbas Tyrewala and Shridhar Raghavan, alongside producer Aditya Chopra sharing the same sentiment.

“All four of us have the same belief system, and the same movies that we’ve adorned and grown and believed in and the cinema that we believe in. We share that, we share the same feeling,” director Anand said in the interview. “So the fact that it doesn’t have a name and it’s in a theater that was actually called Navrang, which was edited out, which you might see in the OTT version.”

Pathan follows titular RAW agent Feroz Pathaan (Khan), who is called back into the force to prevent a terrorist attack on India. John Abraham (Attack) plays his nemesis Jim, the leader of a mercenary group Outfit X, who once worked as a RAW agent before going rogue. Deepika Padukone (Chennai Express) who has worked with Khan several times in the past also appears as ISI agent Rubina Mohsin in the film, while Dimple Kapadia (Tenet) plays Nandini Grewal, a unit leader security which recruits former RAW agents who have been forced to retire. It was also the first Indian film to be released in ICE (Immersive Cinema Experience) format, in addition to IMAX screenings.

Pathan is playing now in theaters nationwide and will be available on Amazon Prime Video on March 22. In India, the film will be available to stream in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
