Since its premiere, the action-thriller Pathaan has been universally praised for its amazing quality. The movie has a great cast, a convoluted narrative, and a great soundtrack, and the internet can’t stop praising it. After four years, Shah Rukh Khan finally gave a performance worthy of his reputation, and the response has been universally positive.
But throughout their exchange, the actor referred to John Abraham’s character as “Jim,” the film’s central adversary. Pathaan himself praised John, and John dubbed him “the national gem” after hearing the adulation.
Shah Rukh Khan said:
“John was so kind to me. He would rehearse the action sequences with me for so many days and I thought he wants to rehearse. But after three days, I realized that John is practicing just so that I don’t get hurt and I get used to it. He was so kind to me.”
He added: “I want to say one thing. It shouldn’t sound patronizing, but I genuinely feel, the backbone of Pathaan, the best thing in the film, is Jim played by John.”
John said: “I’m surprised ki yeh pehle action star kyu nahi bane. I told Shah Rukh that you are the national treasure of the country. I can’t hit you.”
In addition, he said that in his mind Shah Rukh Khan is more than just an actor; he represents a whole nation’s worth of sentiments. We concur!
