Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone starrer Pathaan released on January 25, 2023, and it has been roaring at the box office. The film’s box-office collections has already broken a number of records and has been garnering praise from fans. Pathaan is a part of Aditya Chopra’s ambitious spy universe which kicked off with Ek Tha Tiger in 2012.

Recently, Shah Rukh hosted an Ask SRK session, during which he heaped praises on Salman Khan and called himself a fan of Tiger.

Shah Rukh Khan took to his Twitter a few minutes ago, and wrote, “I am loving it that you are loving it. #AskSRK for a few minutes to share more of love if that’s possible….and keep the questions ZINDA!!! #Pathaan.” He answered numerous questions, a lot of which were about Salman Khan’s cameo in Pathaan. One Twitter user wrote that while Pathaan is a hit film, SRK cannot compete with Salman Khan at the box office. “@iamsrk Sir Pathaan tho hit ho gyi lekin Salman Khan ka muqabla nhi kr paoge box-office pe #AskSRK,” wrote the Twitter user. Shah Rukh had the most humbling response, and he was all praise for Salman. He wrote, “Salman bhai is…woh kya kehte hain aaj kal…young log…haan….GOAT. ( greatest of all time ) #Pathaan.”

Another fan had a hilarious request, that read, “Sir train vale scene me chaiya chaiya dance bi kar dete salman sir ke sathh ….@iamsrk #AskSRK.” Shah Rukh wrote, “Bhai jitna kar saka kar diya na…ab jaan loge bacche ki kya!!! #Pathaan,” leaving fans in splits.
