Pathaan was first shown in theatres on January 25. It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham. Since then, the movie has been a huge hit at the theatre. Siddharth Anand directed the movie, which also had important roles for Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. Salman Khan also showed up out of the blue. The audience liked seeing Shah Rukh in a new role after such a long time. Pathaan has earned more than 700 crores worldwide.Pinkvilla just talked to the ship’s captain and is getting a lot of praise and having a lot of success. Siddharth talked about his hit movies, War and Pathaan, which are both part of the YRF espionage series. He also revealed whether or not SRK and Hrithik Roshan will collaborate in future films.
Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, Tiger 3, War, and now Pathaan are all part of YRF’s spy world, which was just made public. Salman also played Tiger in the movie, along with Pathaan. The most applause was given during those scenes. Tiger 3 will also have a major part for Shah Rukh. Anand was asked in the exclusive interview if Pathaan and Hrithik’s character Kabir will ever meet.”I think it’s something they’ll have in common at some point, and that’s what’s so exciting.” We’ve seen what they can do on their own. So in the world that Aditya Chopra is making, it’s exciting that you can do so much more with them now, and it’s also exciting that they might meet up at some point.
With Pathaan and War, Siddharth has joined the group of directors who have made two 300-crore films. Ali Abbas Zafar and Rajkumar Hirani, who made the movies “PK” and “Sanju,” are the other two directors who have done this (Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan). The talented director said, “It’s very humbling and, in a way, a privilege.” Everyone in our business cares a lot about the number 300. Crossing 300 crore at the box office is something that everyone is thinking about. What I keep saying is that it has become like a finish line. “Now they want 400!”
Siddharth also talked about how the two main series in YRF’s spy universe are coming along. He also said, “It’s amazing that you’re able to make these franchises that people love.” A franchise is a character or movie that the public really likes. It’s true that they haven’t had enough of it, but that’s not the point. So you have to give them more, and that’s how franchises come to be. So the fact that I was able to make two of them right after each other is something that makes me feel good. So it’s both humbling and exciting to know that what I make is getting to people.
Sidharth has made movies with Hrithik, Shah Rukh, and Salman (special appearances). He was asked what kinds of problems directors face when they have to work with a superstar. He said that one must adapt to the actor’s mood and understand how they are thinking. He also said that a director must be persistent if he or she wants to get the best performance from a superstar.
Anand said, “Every actor has his own personality and aura, and as a director, you’re more like a therapist.” So you have to get used to their mood and way of thinking because they are big stars. I worked with Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor when he was just starting out, and then I moved on to Hrithik, who was already a big star. A director needs to know how everyone is thinking so they can get the best work from everyone. So you have to change, find a way around it, and get the best out of them to get what you want, even though they have a lot of experience. But they were easy and beautiful. “It’s a party if they trust you.”
