Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan revealed another look from his spy thriller movie ‘Pathaan’ on Saturday after a shirtless picture in March, as the actor celebrated his 30 years in the film industry.

“30 yrs and not counting cos ur love & smiles have been infinite. Here’s to continuing with #Pathaan,” he said in an Instagram post.

Khan, who was last seen in Anand L Rai’s directed movie ‘Zero’ in 2018, is returning with three releases next year. Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki and Atlee’s Jawan are the other two movies.

Khan in March had shared his picture with a caption about his movie.

Pathaan, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in main roles, would be released on January 25, 2023, in multiple languages. The date was announced on March 2, 2022. It is directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films.

30 years in Indian film industry

Shah Rukh Khan started his big-screen debut with the film Dil Aashna Hai in 1992 opposite the late Divya Bharti. In his initial years, Khan was popular for his acting in negative roles like Baazigar, Anjam, and Darr. But, his role as Raj in the 1995 super hit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge changed his persona to a romantic hero.

Since then, he has starred in many romantic movies. Khan also played the role of lover in Devdas, which was adapted from a novel of the same title. Previously, legendary actor Dilip Kumar had played the role of Devdas movie released in 1955.

Khan tried to bring innovation to the Indian film industry by working and producing Ra.One. The film zero had special effects as he played the role of a dwarf in the movie.
