Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is ready to enthrall moviegoers with his much-awaited film, ‘Pathaan.’ The action-packed movie, which hit theaters today, marks the comeback of the superstar after a four-year long break. The film is also part of Yash Raj's spy universe.

According to Times Now, the film is already available on two websites, Filmyzilla, and Filmy4wap.

Before the grand release, Yash Raj Films, the producers of "Pathaan," requested that people watch the movie in theaters and cautioned against leaking footage recorded from the big screen.

"All set for the biggest action spectacle? A humble request to everyone to refrain from recording any videos, sharing them online and giving out any spoilers. Experience Pathaan only in cinemas," YRF tweeted. The makers also shared an e-mail address where piracy can be reported.
