Meet Amar Akbar Anthony: Ft Pathaan
Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham, has been breaking box office records every day. The Pathaan team made the decision to gather yesterday to discuss the remarkable success the movie has achieved at international box offices. At the press conference, Siddharth Anand, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, and Shah Rukh Khan mingled with the media and shared their excitement to celebrate it's success. Shah Rukh Khan also compared himself, Deepika, and John to the characters from Manmohan Desai's 1977 film "Amar, Akbar, Anthony" during the discussion, and he offered a message of love, inclusivity, and unity.
A video from yesterday’s Pathaan event is going viral on social media, and it shows King Khan comparing himself and his co-stars to Amar Akbar Anthony. “This is Deepika Padukone, she is Amar, I’m Shah Rukh Khan, I’m Akbar and John is Anthony… We are ‘Amar, Akbar, Anthony’. And this is what makes cinema. There are no differences any one of us have for anybody any culture, any aspect of life,” said.
SRK continued by saying that they are driven by the affection of the audience and that their love from their fans is more important than the millions of dollars in box office receipts. “We love you and that's why we make films. We love you to give us love. We are hungry for audience’s love. All these crores are not important… The love we receive…nothing is bigger than that,” the actor said. He further added that when artistes make films, their aim is to spread happiness, kindness, love and brotherhood. “Even when I’m playing a bad guy in ‘Darr’ or John is bad in this film… We are just playing characters. None of this is meant to hurt any sentiment. It is just entertainment,” he said.
Needless to say, Shah Rukh’s beautiful message struck a chord with fans. The video was also shared on Reddit, and while one Reddit user wrote, “Ek hi to dil hai, kitni baar jeetoge Shah Rukh!,” another one wrote, “I loveeeee the analogy SRK made here. He really is a national treasure !!”
