‘Pathaan’, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, is one of the most anticipated films to release this year. Touted as one of the biggest ever action spectacles, the film boasts of some of the most extravagant stunts at exotic locations.
Producer Aditya Chopra and director Siddharth Anand have not left any stone unturned to ensure that ‘Pathaan’ is the grandest theatrical experience for audiences. We now have confirmed information that ‘Pathaan’ is the first Indian film to be shot at the frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia.

Siddharth says, “We have ensured that we take the action in ‘Pathaan’ several notches above what Indian audiences have seen in theatres. In fact, we have only shot action sequences that have never been attempted by any Indian film so far. ‘Pathaan’ promises to deliver the best visual spectacle for people and we have shot a high speed bike chase sequence on the stunning frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia!”
He adds, “Every equipment needed to shoot this high risk sequence had to be shipped from Moscow which is almost about 2000 kilometres away from where we were shooting. So, this was a huge task which the production very smoothly handled. We ended up shooting the most visually stunning chase sequence on frozen ice and biting cold and I hope this sequence will make people jump off their seats because we are truly very happy with how it has shaped up.”
The trailer of ‘Pathaan’ was dropped on January 10 and within no time, it became one of the most viewed videos online.
It features John Abraham as the lead antagonist of the story and he will be seen packing some serious punches with SRK.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Pathaan’ is all set to hit the silver screens on January 25.
