With SRK’s latest release ‘Pathaan’ breaking all records at the box office, his fans have turned the entire nation in a celebration mood. Helmed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Pathaan’, which was released on January 25, also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in the lead roles.

Apart from “seeti maar” dialogues and high-octane action scenes, it’s Salman Khan’s extended cameo as Tiger that has made the film more special. It is the fourth instalment in the YRF Spy Universe, and is SRK’s comeback film after Zero (2018). The film has created history as it has overtaken SS Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali 2’ and Yash-starrer ‘KGF 2’ to become the fastest film to enter Rs 200 crore club. It collected Rs 429 crore gross worldwide in four days, said production banner Yash Raj Films (YRF) on Sunday.

‘Pathaan’ is on a record-breaking run at the domestic and overseas box office as it collected Rs 542 crore gross worldwide in just 5 days.

The star cast of Pathaan – SRK, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham – attended the movie success event on Monday. During the interaction, King Khan revealed the story behind taking a break for 4 long years to do a film.

Shah Rukh said: “It’s nice to be back. I am not in a hurry to finish the film. It’s always been my desire to spread happiness among people and make films to entertain. Whenever I fail to do so, nobody feels as bad as me. I am very happy that I was able to spread the happiness and especially to those who are close to my heart – Aditya Chopra and Siddharth. And those who gave me the opportunity as you will notice the film is a very big film, it will be an expensive film. But to get me and give me a chance to come at the time I was not working and allow me to be a part of this film. I will ever ever be grateful to Aditya Chopra and Siddharth. And also, to Deepika. I have forgotten those 4 years in these 4 days are the happiest.”

Shah Rukh Khan during the success event of his recently released ‘Pathaan’ talked about the sequel of the film and said, “Whenever he (Siddharth) wants me I’ll do it.”

Deepika Padukone got emotional while speaking about the massive box office phenomenon that ‘Pathaan’ has become, during a success event of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer in Mumbai.

Replying to this while wiping happy tears from her eyes, an emotional Deepika said, “It felt amazing. We had been doing indoor screening for days but finally, I got a chance to get out. I wanted to go on the day of the film’s release but that could not happen. To experience this kind of love, especially when what the world has been through, the fact that a movie like this that can bring people together, that it can bring so much joy and celebration that it almost feels like a festival.”

John Abraham, who stars as the antagonist in Shah Rukh Khan’s box office blockbuster ‘Pathaan’, recently during the film’s success event wittily corrected a fan who was cheering “Shah Rukh Khan is back.”

Shah Rukh Khan planted a kiss on John Abraham’s cheek during a ‘Pathaan’ success event on Monday. During the event, John who was sharing his experience doing the Jim character said, “Jim is cool, he is and when SRK interrupts and planted a kiss.” SRK said “I have given kisses to Deepika many times and this is the first with John and it was different.”

John said, “So sweet. For the first time, I think I am blushing.”

John also shared his experience with SRK. He said, “I got to work with Shah Rukh for the first time. I don’t think he is an actor anymore he is an emotion. It is wonderful to have Shah Rukh back like this after 4 years. Earlier I felt like I was an action hero, but I think Shah Rukh Khan today is the number 1 action hero of the country. It’s going to be my biggest hit for a long time.”

John received a lot of appreciation for his negative portrayal in the film.
