Siddharth Anand told why Hrithik is not in the film
‘Pathan’ is Yash Raj Films’ new novel ‘Spy Universe’ film. So far ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ and ‘War’ have been made in this franchise. ‘Pathan’ has also left behind these three films in terms of earning. Salman Khan has done a cameo in ‘Pathan’. Fans expected that Hrithik Roshan would also surprise in the role of Kabir in the film, but it did not happen. The film’s director Siddharth Anand said in a conversation with ‘Pinkvilla’, ‘We could have brought Hrithik as well, but Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have not been seen before in a film doing this kind of action. I think the last time they did some action scenes together was in 1996 in ‘Karan Arjun’. We were fortunate to have Aditya Chopra on board with ‘Tiger’ to do this crossover and the result has been amazing.’ Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, ‘Pathan’ also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. Siddharth Anand has also given a hint about the sequel of the film.

There is no threat to ‘Pathan’ this week
The good thing for ‘Pathan’ is that there are two new films releasing this Friday, but neither ‘Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat’ nor ‘Faraj’ seems to be giving any competition. The next big release at the box office is Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Shehzada’, which is set to release on 10 February. In such a situation, there is a chance for Pathan to earn freely in the second week as well.
