Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says the box office success of Pathaan is making him feel like a proud father. Pathaan, which was released on Wednesday, has raised a total of Rs 313 crore worldwide.
The actor said that he is “loving it” that the audience is enjoying the spy action thriller, and to celebrate the movie’s dream run at the ticket window, the superstar hosted an impromptu #AskSRK session on Twitter.
In response to a fan’s query about how he is taking in the love coming his way, Shah Rukh said: “As happy as a father is when he sees his child being appreciated.” Another fan pointed out the record-breaking box office numbers of the film, but Shah Rukh said he is not concerned about the money the movie makes. The actor organized a special screening prior to the film’s theatrical release for his family, including children Aryan, Suhana, and AbRam.
Shah Rukh credited producer Aditya Chopra and director Siddharth Anand for being the main architects behind Pathaan. Also, key roles in the movie are played by John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Dimple Kapadia, and Ashutosh Rana.
Many fans asked him about his on screen reunion with Salman, with whom he has featured in movies such as Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam, Tubelight, and Zero.
Pathaan follows the titular spy (Shah Rukh), who comes out of exile to stop terrorist group Outfit X, led by Jim (Abraham), from launching a debilitating attack on India.
