Vivek Agnihotri heaps praise on Shah Rukh Khan
Vivek Agnihotri had made fun of Pathaan and its song “Besharam Rang” before the film’s debut. He posted a video in which critics called the song insulting to Indian sensibilities. But in a recent viral video, Vivek shocked everyone by congratulating Shah Rukh Khan for the success of his film and calling out the folks who were seeking a boycott of the movie.
Speaking on The Carvaka Podcast, Vivek Agnihotri said, “Pathaan worked purely because of the charisma and fan following of Shah Rukh, the way he marketed it and the way he took it on his shoulders that ‘it is my film and I am responsible for it’, which is pretty good.”
He even took a dig at unnecessary boycott calls saying, “I also think that some credit (of Pathaan’s success) should also go to people who were making stupid statements against the film and people who were unnecessarily protesting and asking for a boycott.”
