'Pathaan' released on January 25. It also stars Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. Director Siddharth Anand reveals, "The toughest action to execute in Pathaan - one is on top of a moving train, one is mid-air with planes, one is in Dubai which takes place in the boulevard around the Burj Khalifa which no Hollywood film has been able to do this."
At a media event, Shah Rukh crooned the track 'Aanhon Mein Teri' from the film 'Om Shanti Om', which marked the debut of Deepika alongside Shah Rukh, almost 15 years back. Considering Deepika started her career opposite Shah Rukh, the superstar felt it fitting to dedicate the song to her and bring back treasured memories.
During an #AskSRK session on Twitter, a user asked the `Dilwale` actor, "Have you ever sneak into a theatre to watch your own movie to see the reaction of the fans." To which the actor replied, "No haven`t done that for a long time....also haven`t had a release na....for #Pathaan maybe it`s that kind of film that should be watched in an audience packed hall."
TV actor Adnan Khan, who is currently seen playing the role of Viaan in the show 'Kathaa Ankahee', talked about drawing inspiration from Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan for his role in the show. He shared: "Shah Rukh Khan is my hero because I think he is brilliant and witty. He came from nowhere and became the king of Bollywood through sheer will, hard work, and discipline."
The centre of the protests is the song, which features Deepika in several looks, including in a saffron bikini While debate raged, team Pathaan found support in filmmaker Rahul Dholakia and some others who condemned the vandalism Earlier, the head priest of an Ayodhya temple said he would burn alive Khan for disrespecting Hindu religion
