The onscreen pair has fast become Bollywood's golden couple and after the success of ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Happy New Year’, the two have made history yet again with ‘Pathaan’, which is the most successful Bollywood film post pandemic.
The actor recently credited Deepika for the ‘sexiest fight scene’ in the film. Speaking about the impact she made in her action sequences, SRK joked, “Many people have seen it and voh trailer mein bhi hai, ek admi se lipatkar, ghoomakar, usko neeche girake, uspe chadkar usko maarti hai...mere saath aisa karle...itna pyaar hai uske andar...I'm toh jealous of that guy ki yaar itne kareeb se itni khoobsurati aur uske upper baitkar...main bolta 'aur maar aur maar' (Many people have seen it already and it’s also in the trailer where Deepika Padukone in the action scene, jumps onto someone, flips him, drops him to the floor and hits him, I wish she did that with me. I’m jealous of that guy for being so close to someone so beautiful. If it were me, I would have said "hit me more, hit me more…(laughs)..)”
SRK then added, “If I may say so, I think it’s one of the sexiest action scenes that I have seen.”
Nonetheless, Shah Rukh and Deepika have always created magic every time they have come together on screen and the superstar even crooned ‘Aankhon Mein Teri’ to Deepika on stage when celebrating the success of the film.
Coming to ‘Pathaan’, the film directed by Sidharth Anand, also stars John Abraham in key role.
