by Shah Rukh Khan Pathan has been smashing records since it was released on January 25th. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film is expected to cross 500 crore worldwide. Bollywood celebrities including Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt have praised the film to the skies and the latest actor to do so is Nimrat Kaur. He took to Instagram and shared several snapshots from the spy thriller.
Nimrat Kaur called SRK’s charisma ‘pure magic’ and said ‘long live movies’. He wrote, “For all who believed and stood by the immortality and alchemy of the cinematic experience. Stand and sing along to the national anthem before settling in to sign yourself up for this BIG SCREEN experience.”
He added, “To laugh, to cheer, to move to the music, to cry and to get your popcorn while it’s all going on. And for the sheer magic of Shah Rukh Khan’s unparalleled charisma as he explodes with that first big reveal and draws you in until the credits roll. Like an untamed wild animal in its most natural environment. Watching Pathaan was everything I love and live for as a film lover and artist. Long live the magic. Long live the movies.”
Karan Johar had earlier shared his review of Pathaan saying, “I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun at the movies!!!! This is simply the biggest blockbuster!!! Mega is the word!!! The charm, the charisma, the superstardom, the desirability and the sheer brilliance of @iamsrk…the hottest, most handsome and stunningly gorgeous agent you’ll ever find @deepikapadukone the sexiest and most desirable villain @thejohnabraham!!! Excellent direction and concept by SID ANAND! He knows how to set up a movie like few can…. I am so so proud of my BFF the invisible ADITYA CHOPRA!!! You may never see him! But his vision and brilliance are insurmountable!” He also referred to the constant boycott calls and slander plaguing the film as well as Bollywood in recent years, showing that this was a triumph for SRK.
Pathaan marks SRK’s return to the big screen after four years. The film has already crossed 280 crore in India, breaking several records, and is set to beat Dangal’s lifetime collections as well.
