Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan is one of the many billions of football fans and enthusiasts who are going to watch the grand finale of the FIFA World Cup 2022, between France and Argentina, Times of India reported.

The veteran actor will be in the studio watching the match, which promises to be an enthralling contest and will also be promoting Pathaan along with Wayne Rooney, the retired English football star.

SRK initially posted a promo video on social media and stated that he will be promoting the film at the finals of the tournament in conjunction with the Jio Cinema brand.

To generate more anticipation for the film in his trademark cool style, SRK said in humorous fashion, "Field par Messi aur Mbappe... Studio mein Wayne Rooney aur main, Pathaan 18 December ki shaam hogi shaandaar, Dekhiye FIFA World Cup Final mere saath, LIVE on Jio Cinema and Sports 18."

Incidentally, SRK will not be the only Pathaan star present at the final between France and Argentina. Deepika Padukone is set to present the FIFA World Cup trophy at the Lusail stadium in Qatar.

Pathaan, scheduled to release on 25 January 2023, is directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films. It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham and will be released simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
