To celebrate the indomitable spirit of India, YRF (India’s largest film distribution and production company) has associated with Shell’s Lubricants business as the official engine oil partner for ‘Pathaan’. Set to release on January 25, 2023, this first-of-its-kind association underscores Shell’s ‘Partners in Progress’ philosophy, promoting the spirit of building and growing community partnerships with their loyal trade partners. The out-film partnership is a testament to Shell’s efforts in recognizing mechanics who are valued members of the business and will provide them with an exciting opportunity to meet superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

We believe this will further strengthen our connection with customers.”

As part of the collaboration, Shell has also announced a campaign to its extended trade community with Pathaan movie tickets and exciting movie-branded merchandise to be won.
