SRK has more than one movie in theatres this week in addition to Pathaan. The 1995 movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge was re-released in theatres during Valentine’s week. “Blockbusters of 2 eras – DDLJ and Pathaan are here! This Valentine’s week, witness the grandness in cinemas near you,” read a tweet shared by Yash Raj Films’ Twitter account. The films have already released on February 10 and the festival will go on till February 14. However, Shah Rukh’s amusing response to YRF’s tweet will surely make you laugh.
The Hindi releases of this festival include movies like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge, Jab We Met, and Tamasha. Shah Rukh Khan responded to both of his movie’s screening concurrently in theatres by posting a poster of DDLJ and Pathaan on his Twitter account. Sharing the poster, he tweeted, “Arre yaar itni mushkil se action hero bana….and you guys are bringing back Raj…uff!! This competition is killing me!!!! I am going to see #Pathaan …Raj toh ghar ka hai.”
A user wrote, “DDLJ is unique anthem of love & Pathaan is great action movie. Both characters in both movies are fighting for what they believe & it is truly beautiful????. No matter romance or action characters which you create are unique because you put your heart in your acting,” however there were also fans who were not-so-happy with SRK’s tweet. A user twetted, “Utna koi acha movie nahi hai pathan! DDLJ was super hit by word of mouth because it is a amazing movie! Pathan is just shoving an avg product in everyone’s throat Dekh dekh dekh itna acha hai dekh dekh SRK is back dekh dekh!”
The movie Pathaan has broken box office records and is now India’s highest-grossing Hindi film. Helmed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
