Shah Rukh Khan fans and also the industry and trade, at large, heaved a sigh of relief as the much-awaited teaser of Pathaan was finally dropped on November 2 by Yash Raj Films (YRF). This date was chosen as it was the 57th birthday of lead actor Shah Rukh Khan. As expected, the teaser broke the internet as it promised that it’ll be a slick entertainer. What has also upped the excitement is that it is a part of the spy universe of YRF. Hence, Salman Khan will have a cameo in the film, wherein he’ll reprise his role as Tiger. Interestingly, Kabir, the character played by Hrithik Roshan in War (2019), is also said to be a part of this universe.

Meanwhile, a dialogue in the teaser of Pathaan has given rise to an interesting fan theory and a possible and direct connection of this film with that of War. In War, Kabir in a scene tells his boss Colonel Sunil Luthra (Ashutosh Rana) that Khalid’s (Tiger Shroff) father Major Abdur Rehmani had become a traitor and had killed his ‘buddy’ and ‘partner’. On the other hand, the opening dialogues of Pathaan indicate that the lead character, played by Shah Rukh Khan, was presumed dead. This has led several netizens to speculate that the buddy and partner Kabir referred to was none other than Pathaan.

A source told Bollywood Hungama, “It was intriguing how Kabir never mentioned the name of his friend who supposedly died. It reminded many fans of how such Easter Eggs are usually placed by Marvel and other franchises, which hints at one should read between the lines. And this theory has grown bigger after Pathaan’s teaser was dropped. The fans feel that Pathaan may have survived the attack by Khalid’s father and must have remained hidden for some reason. Obviously, the teaser also has a dialogue that mentions that Pathaan was caught in his last mission. Nevertheless, this theory has given rise to an interesting aspect. If it’s true, it also means that producer Aditya Chopra and director Siddharth Anand had thought of taking the franchise quite a long time back.”

Besides Shah Rukh Khan, Pathaan also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. It releases in cinemas on January 23, 2023.
