According to director Siddharth Anand, Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Pathaan has huge Hollywood star Tom Cruise in it. The director said, “If you want to make India’s spectacular action movie with one of our country’s greatest heroes of all time, Shah Rukh Khan, you have to have a champion team united in the vision.”
Siddharth continued, “Fortunately we have an A-team that came together to push the visual envelope with Pathaan and I was delighted to have someone like Casey O’Neill, who has worked extensively with Tom Cruise, on our side.”
Considered one of Hollywood’s top action directors, Emmy Award-nominated Casey is the mastermind behind Tom Cruise’s life-threatening stunts in films such as Jack Reacher, Mission Impossible series films, Top Gun: Maverick and has also collaborated with Marvel Studios and Steven Spielberg to name a few.

On Casey, Siddharth adds: “He brings a wealth of experience and he immediately believed in the idea of creating edge-of-the-seat action for Pathaan that could emulate what he’s been doing back home in Hollywood.” “What Casey has done in ‘Pathaan’ is simply mind-boggling. You’ll have to see the movie for that, because we’re not going to release any details of the movie until it hits theaters on January 25.”
Casey is also a seven-time Screen Actors Guild Award nominee and a three-time winner of the Taurus World Stunt Awards for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Captain America Winter Soldier and Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol. His skills have also earned him a membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and a membership in the elite Brand X Action Specialists. Pathaan star Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. Pathaan will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on January 25, 2023.
