The promo opens with Shah Rukh in front of the camera as Pathaan, altering the film's dialogue slightly. Wearing a black T-shirt and pants, the actor said, "Aapni kursi ke peti bandh lo, kyun ki Pathaan aa gaya hain, sirf Prime Video par (Fasten your seat belts, Pathaan is coming on)..." The actor then gets frustrated with the lines he's saying and tells Bhuvan Bam, who is a playing a writer, that they need to try something new. Film's dialogues don't work for promos like this, he tells him.

However, Bhuvan's suggestions don't quite make the cut for Shah Rukh as he turns them all down for being predictable. Taking matters into his own hands, he tells Bhuvan, "I'll show you." The actor then goes in front of the camera, and flexes his biceps and shows off his six-pack abs before simply saying, "Pathaan dekhiye sirf Prime Video par (Watch Pathaan only on Prime Video)." The promo is okayed and the pleased actor walks off the set.

Viewers can watch Pathaan in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu starting from March 22. The director had even hinted that there might be certain deleted scenes in the digital version. In an interview with Galatta Plus, Siddharth had hinted about the lead character's backstory and religion. He had said, “It's the synergy that Abbas [Tyrewala], Sridhar [Ragahavan], Adi [Chopra] and me, it's the four of us, not the three of us. The four of us have the same belief system, and the same films we’ve grown up on, and believed in. We share that. So, the fact that he doesn’t have a name, and he’s found in a theatre that was actually called Navrang… This got edited out, but you might see this in the OTT version…"

Produced by Yash Raj Films, Pathaan also stars Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. Vishal–Shekhar have composed the music of the film.
