Pathaan OTT release: Fans demand re-release of the movie in theatres along with all the deleted scenes – Check out

Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham, and Deepika Padukone, has been made available with an extended version of the film on the OTT giant Amazon Prime Video, and with a few deleted scenes.

The action-packed comedy Pathaan, which starred Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham in the key roles, was released in theatres on January 25. It became one of the highest-grossing films in Indian cinema history, making more than Rs 1000 crore at the international box office.

The Siddharth Anand-directed film eventually had an OTT premiere on Amazon Prime Video on March 22 after nearly two months. Four brand-new sequences that were cut from the theatrical version of Pathaan were included in the OTT version. These scenes include one with Dimple Kapadia on a plane, one with SRK’s character being tortured in a Russian jail, one with Shah Rukh rejoining the elite unit JOCR (Joint Operations and Covert Research), and one with Dimple Kapadia on a flight, and a scene of Deepika Padukone being interrogated.

One fan wrote, “That scene when Pathaan comes back to JOCR was bloody good. Don’t know why it was deleted. Also, them working out a plan to infiltrate Jim’s lab. Would have added weight to the entire lab scene”. Another tweeted, “Really happy #PathaanOnPrime. Bt a bit upset coz, I watched this move in the theatre with a few deleted scenes. I wish they hadn’t edited those scenes that are on Prime now, we would have enjoyed it more. All the best #Pathaan team. God bless.”

“@iamsrk bhai deleted scenes ke sath fir se release kardo theater me (Please release the movie again in theatres with deleted scenes)”, read another tweet from a fan, while one more wrote, “Good morning to those who slept well after watching Pathaan & those who will make their day fabulous today by watching #PathaanOnPrime. Except for that idiot editor who cut the entry of Pathaan in the RAW centre with an amazing BGM.”


Pathaan, the fourth movie in the YRF Spy Universe following Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Hrithik Roshan’s War, is produced by Aditya Chopra under his production company, Yash Raj Films. Salman Khan returned as Tiger in a pivotal appearance in the movie’s action-packed scene.
