The biggest-grossing Hindi film in history, Pathaan from Yash Raj Films, has become an all-time classic, and viewers adore the fact that two superspies from the YRF Spy Universe Salman Khan as Tiger and Shah Rukh Khan as Pathaan appear in the movie. For the first time, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman open up about how happy they were to be reunited on film, how Aditya Chopra's idea for their reunion left them speechless, and how masterfully Siddharth Anand directed and gave them unforgettable swag!
Salman Khan reveals, “For Shah Rukh and I to come together on the big screen, it always needed a special film and I’m glad Pathaan is that film. When we did Karan Arjun, it was a blockbuster and now, Pathaan, which is part of YRF’s Spy Universe, has also turned out to be a blockbuster. I’m aware that audiences love to see us together on screen and I’m happy that they have given us so much love in Pathaan. I was floored when Adi narrated the sequence to me and told me about his vision to bring us together on screen again.”
He further reveals, “His (Adi’s) intention was to play to the gallery and give our fans and audiences what they wanted to see from us. Given how closely Adi has known Shah Rukh and me, he truly managed to capture how we are as personalities in the scenes. This is why people are loving us on screen. Also the way Sidharth executed the sequence and presented us was just brilliant. I’m happy for Shah Rukh and YRF for all the records that Pathaan is achieving. It is a huge win for Indian cinema that we are able to bring people back to the theatres after the pandemic.”
About the reunion with Salman Khan, Shah Rukh tells, “When Adi told me about the idea to bring the two super spies from YRF’s Spy Universe, Tiger and Pathaan, together to do some kick-ass action scenes, which I’m hoping many people have seen by now, I instantly jumped at it because this idea was delivering the promise of seeing Salman and I on the big screen. I’m delighted that people have loved seeing us together in Pathaan.”
SRK further tells, “I know it was a long wait for fans to see us like this on screen and I’m glad that we have delivered a film that they are thoroughly enjoying. Besides this it’s too much fun with Bhai on sets. I had missed being with him on screen so it all turned out as it should…and that Tiger scarf I am keeping as a memento!!”
