Pathaan is winning millions of hearts and breaking many records every day. From being the highest opener for Bollywood to the highest number of global screens, SRK’s movie is creating havoc at box-office.
Shah Rukh Khan’s film, which marks his return to the big screen after a four-year absence, is unquestionably a “blockbuster comeback.”
Recently, actress Kangana Ranaut spoke highly of the film Pathaan, but it appears that her hangover has passed. While praising the film on Wednesday actor Kangana Ranaut wrote, “’Pathaan’ is doing well. Such films should definitely work. Hindi cinema that is lagging behind… every person is trying their best…” But the praise was short-lived. Read more to know what happened.
Karan Johar, SRK’s close friend and Kangana’s bitter rival, wrote a lengthy letter shortly after the movie’s debut.
In an Instagram story series he uploaded to praise the movie, KJo stated, “Hits that surpass a century! Over 100 crores in a single day! Adi (Aditya Chopra), the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) megastar SRK, and the iconic and visionary YRF..Sid (Siddharth Anand), John, and Deepika! Wow. Hate will never win over love.”

In response to KJo’s quote, “Love always trumps hate,” Kangana turned to Twitter and said several things for Pathaan. “All those who are claiming Pathan is a triumph of love over hatred, I agree but whose love over whose hate?” was the first in a series of tweets she sent out.
To be more specific, whose purchases tickets and ensures their success? Yes, India is a country of love and inclusivity, with 80% of the population being Hindu. Yet a film called Pathan. Even Kangana acknowledged that Pathaan portrays Pakistan and the ISI favourably.
She wrote on Twitter, “…. Which puts our enemy Pakistan and ISIS in a favourable light, it is this spirit of India beyond hate and judgements that make it Mahan… Love for India has defeated enemies’ petty politics and hatred. All those with high hopes, please take note. Pathan Sirf Ek Movie Ho Sakte Hai par goonjega toh yahan sirf Jai Shri Ram.”
Kangana, as usual, attempted to spin her remarks, saying, “I do believe Indian Muslims are patriotic and very different from Afghan Pathans… The crux is that India will never be Afghanistan; we all know what’s going on in Afghanistan; it’s beyond hell there, so the movie Pathan, according to its plot, is called the Indian Pathan.”
