Even if we are playing bad characters, say things in the film, it isn’t intended to hurt any sentiment. Fun and entertainment should be left at that… don’t take it seriously. We love each other and just want to spread love. Deepika is Amar, I’m Akbar, John is Anthony. We are Amar Akbar Anthony of cinema.”

Shah Rukh Khan On Being Low On Confidence During Pathaan
During the press conference SRK shared how he was not feeling very confident when he started shooting for ‘Pathaan’. He shared, “I was low on confidence when we started work on it because I was coming to set after a long time. Even I get scared, I feel insecure, I lose confidence many times in the day. That’s why I keep going because the weaker you are, the stronger you can become. And my beautiful friends around me, like Deepika Padukone, John, Siddharth Anand, helped me.”

Deepika Padukone was seen getting emotional during the press conference. Speaking about the response she said, “It felt amazing. The love that we are getting. To experience this love after what the world has been through. That a film like this can bring in so much celebration, it feels incredible. This feels like a festival. To keep the head down and keep going and then to see all the love, it’s worth it.”
While talking about her action sequences in Pathaan, Deepika said, “I have been underutilisied in doing action. Because I have an athletic background, I have done a few movies where I have done action. Action for me is like dance.”
No one can deny that Pathaan has brought smiles to many faces in Bollywood. The way Pathaan is performing at the box-office, it won’t be wrong to call it Bollywood’s savior. We wish the makers all the best and hope the sequel will be as much entertaining as Pathaan!
