Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan stars Shah Rukh as a soldier named Pathaan, who ends his ‘hiatus’ as he is called to take down a terrorist outfit led by John Abraham. Deepika Padukone joins Shah Rukh in his mission.

Now talking about the film, Shah Rukh in a chat session, shared on Yash Raj Film’s YouTube account, shared his thoughts on John playing a negative role. He recalled how he has known John since he shifted to Mumbai and became friends. Describing him as ‘shy, very quiet and reculsive’, Shah Rukh said he was keen on seeing John in Pathaan.

“I met him many times when he was doing a film or we wanting to do a film together and this happened per chance. I was very keen he does it and he was kind enough to do a role where he is really a bad guy. He is a top star. He has his own franchises happening and he has got these really cool action films happening and to decide to take on a film where he is a bad guy, you know, so takes a lot of guts,” he added. Shah Rukh also shared while most actors refuse to play antagonists in films, John is different. “Takes a lot of confidence in your own self, especially when I see in the Hindi film scenario. Heroes don’t play bad guys. I’d love to play a bad guy. I gained deep respect for him.”

“It was nice working with him and all so I realised he is a gentle giant. You know when we were doing action and everything. He says…he called me a national treasure and said, ‘I will not hurt you.’ I said you can, it’s ok. He is very shy and I had to do a lot of convincing to tell him it’s ok, you can punch me and I won’t get hurt. I think he is so proficient in action. He really helped me look nice you know, in body language. It was very kind of him. I think when you are doing a film with a co-star like John, there is a lot to learn from him. Being the star that he is and the respect that he has for me,” said the superstar. He signed off with these words: “I hope when Pathaan comes out, one of the most liked characters, genuinely is John’s. I really wish it because it takes a lot of guts to do what he has done as an actor and as a star,” Shah Rukh shared his work experience with John in their first film together.

Previously, reports suggested things were not alright between John and Shah Rukh. Reportedly, John was upset about the final cut of Pathaan which might have strained his equation with Shah Rukh. What fuelled the rumours was John’s appearance at an event where he dodged a question regarding Shah Rukh Khan’s physique in Pathaan. Later John penned a note on Pathaan.

Pathaan will release on January 25.

The video clip consists of several photos featuring Athiya and Rahul at a photo booth. The two posed with different expressions and were seen goofing around with each other.

In one of them, Rahul placed an adorable kiss on Athiya’s cheeks. She also did the same in another one. While Athiya wore a maroon traditional dress in the photos, Rahul sported a black sequined outfit. The actor also sported a minimal mangalsutra.

The video has been shared by the celebrity wedding planner, Shaadi Squad who arranged Athiya and Rahul’s D-day. Sharing the video, their caption read, “One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila Floooor!! Best after party with the best peeps dancing the night away on the best beats.”

Later, KL Rahul too shared the video but ditched the caption. Reacting to it, Athiya’s best friend Anushka Ranjan wrote in the comment section, “Loooove.” “Kisi ki Nazar na lge aap dono ko (May God protect you from evil),” added a fan. “You both are always my favourite,” another one mentioned.

KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty got married last week after dating for several years. Their wedding ceremony was an intimate affair, with less than 100 guests, including family members and close friends. For the pre-wedding festivities, the house was decorated with white flowers. It changed to a marigold theme for the haldi ceremony.

The couple made their first public appearance as husband and wife on Monday, days after they had posed for the paparazzi on their wedding day. Suniel told the media the couple’s wedding reception will be held after the Indian Premier League (IPL) season, most likely in Mumbai.

Talking about his son-in-law, Suniel said in a post, “Despite having the adulation of the nation, Rahul remains humble. He’s well mannered, intelligent, & extremely composed. Mana & Rahul are a riot together! Most importantly, like all athletes, he’s seen ups & downs – which is something that will help him long after he’s done with cricket. Athiya is blessed to have found such a loving family, because his parents are really just the nicest people.” Athiya was last seen in Motichoor Chaknachoor (2019), co-starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, his family gave ‘no food, bathroom’ to actor’s wife: Lawyer | Bollywood

Published

on

The advocate of Aaliya Siddiqui, wife of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has alleged that the actor and his family members haven’t provided ‘food, bed, bathroom to take bath’ to his client in the last week. In a statement, Rizwan Siddiquee said, “Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members did everything possible to remove my client Mrs Aaliya Siddiqui from the house. They filed an untenable criminal complaint of trespass against her. Thereafter, through the police they threatened to arrest her and were calling her each day to the police station, after sunset.” (Also Read | Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya feels ‘trapped’ inside actor’s house after FIR against her)

“Whilst, I do not want to directly attribute the actions and the failures of the police department to them, yet the fact remains that no police officer ever came to protect my clients rights, even when her modesty was insulted before the police officers. Not only her relationship with Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui was questioned before the police officer, but even the legitimacy of the minor son was questioned. Yet the police officer did not act on the written complaint given by my client under Section 509 of IPC,” the advocate added.

“Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members have in the last seven days ensured that no food, no bed, and no bathroom to take bath is given to my client. They have even posted innumerable male bodyguards all around my client and further installed CCTV cameras in the hall, where my client is currently staying with her minor children,” he continued.

“To add to all of this, they even ensured that I do not obtain any signatures of my client to file appropriate court cases against Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members. Despite being stopped and threatened at multiple levels and no police officer coming to the aid of my client, me and my team managed to obtain signatures of my client for the court cases. Accordingly, multiple cases are being filed in the courts now,” the advocate concluded.

Last week, Aaliya claimed that she was being harassed at her home after Nawazuddin’s mother filed a complaint against her over property dispute. Aaliya is currently staying at Nawazuddin’s Andheri house. Aaliya reportedly returned from Dubai with her kids, Yaani and Shora, due to passport issues.
