No one can deny that Shah Rukh Khan’s movie Pathaan is one of the most highly anticipated movies of recent times. Pathaan marks the comeback of a 57-year-old actor who is aging like a fine wine. When Pathaan’s first look was released, the internet went bizarre. The superstar’s shirtless photo with chiseled abs melted millions of hearts on the internet.
Recently, the makers took to social media to release the song ‘Besharam Rang’. While the song received mixed reviews, there were many who couldn’t stop about talking SRK’s dapper looks. Many fans couldn’t believe that SRK was 57 years old! Shah Rukh’s carved abs made many remember the song Dard-E-Disco from the movie Om Shanti Om, which also had Deepika Padukone.
SRK’s looks from the song also triggered another interesting conversation. Many started comparing SRK’s physique with Amitabh Bachchan in Mohabbatein. As per many sources, Amitabh Bachchan was around the same age as Shah Rukh Khan at the time.
According to reports Mr. Bachchan was 58 years old when he played the character of Narayan Shankar in 2000. Directed by Aditya Chopra, Mohabattein was a blockbuster at the box office and Amitabh Bachchan’s character of a strict principal left many impressed. Amitabh Bachchan played the character so well that even today it gives us goosebumps. And, how could we forget the famous dialogue – “Parampara, Pratishtha, Anushasan”.
The comparison between BigB aged Mohabbatein looks and Sharukh Khan’s dapper looks from Pathaan has triggered a debate.
Here’s how the internet reacted to the comparison:
Some did mention that being an actor is not about looks but about acting skills
Some also spoke about the increasing use of VFX and steroids
Thankfully, some spoke about how both the actors are legends and comparison is unnecessary:
