With Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan broke every significant box office record. In a single week, the Siddharth Anand-directed film brought in Rs 640 crore globally and Rs 315 crore in India. There have been rumours that the producers of the KGF franchise have approached SRK for a Hindi feature following the success of Pathaan. The Production house has now broken the silence.
Vijay Kiragandur, the creator of Hombale Films, responded to the persistent rumours by denying that such a strategy is currently in place. He clarified that they have not discussed a potential partnership with Shah Rukh Khan or his crew. He further stated that they have no plans to produce any Hindi movies till they have a genuinely strong script to work with.
Vijay was asked if the success of Pathaan by Bollywood would hurt the south’s film industry. He revealed to India Today “It won’t, in my opinion, have an impact on either the North or the South’s film industries. The popularity of Pathaan will inspire directors to create quality work. The South Asian and Bollywood film industries benefit from the increased attendance at movie theatres. This is advantageous for the entire Indian entertainment sector. Larger-than-life movies are in demand, and all Indian movies will benefit from Pathaan’s success.”
Without a doubt, the production company had a fantastic year in 2022. They are currently jam-packed with this year’s releases, including Bagheera, Yuva Rajkumar’s flick, Dhoomam, Raghu Thatha, and Salaar, starring Prabhas.
Shah Rukh Khan has returned to the workforce while Pathaan is a box office triumph. The celebrity was photographed on the Jawan set, the next thriller from filmmaker Atlee. The images of his monster avatar are currently trending online.
