Shah Rukh Khan shared the first look of Deepika Padukone’s character in their upcoming film Pathaan. The Gehraiyaan actress is seen firing a bullet with a fierce look in her eyes.

Celebrate #Pathaan with #YRF50 only at a big screen near you on 25th January, 2023. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.” 

The much-anticipated action film is helmed by War director Siddharth Anand and is produced by Yash Raj Films. Shah Rukh will return to the big screen with Pathaan after a hiatus of more than five years. The film is billed as an all-out actioner and Shah Rukh is rumoured to play a spy in it.

Netflix India has released the trailer of their upcoming dark comedy Darlings, which marks the debut of actress Alia Bhatt as a producer. The streaming service previously shared a short teaser of the film which featured a quirky frog vs scorpion analogy. 

Directed by Jasmeet K Reen, Darlings is touted as a dark comedy-drama which explores the struggles of a mother and daughter trying to find their place in Mumbai. 

The trailer opens with the mother-daughter duo visiting a police station to file a missing person police complaint for the daughter’s husband, Hamza (Vijay Varma). The two mastermind Hamza's kidnapping and even take help from Roshan Mathew's Zulfi. Later in the trailer, it is revealed why they decided to kidnap and torture Hamza in their own house and why it may be absolutely justified.

The film Features Alia and Shefali Shah as a clever mother-daughter duo alongside Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew. Produced by Gauri Khan, Alia Bhatt and Gaurav Verma, it also marks Alia’s debut as a producer. 

Darlings will release on Netflix on August 5.

Sita Ramam

Vyjayanthi Movies released the trailer of their upcoming romantic-drama film Sita Ramam, starring Dulquer Salmaan, Mrunal Thakur, Rashmika Mandanna and Sumanth. 

The production house dropped new footage from the highly-anticipated Telugu-language movie directed by Hanu Raghavapudi. 

The trailer provides us a glimpse of the life of Lieutenant Ram (Dulquer Salmaan), and what unfolds after he gets a letter from a girl named Sita. After spending a lovely time together, the couple have to face distance as the army officer heads for his posting in Kashmir. He writes a letter to his ladylove, but it fails to reach her. 

After almost two decades, Rashmika Mandanna (Afreen) is given the responsibility of finally delivering that letter to Sita. But she is unable to find her and hence they choose to find Ram. However, it turns out to be more difficult than finding Sita. The biggest hurdle of all is Ram’s superior, Brigadier Vishnu Sharma (Sumanth).

Sita Ramam is set to arrive in theatres on August 5.
