Responding to the fan, Shahrukh said that Ajay has been a pillar of support and love for me and my family for years. He is a wonderful actor and a beautiful person. Strong and silent. Reacting to Shahrukh’s comment, Ajay tweeted, “Dear @iamsrk, thank you for your love and presence. I cherish the bond we share with you. Pathan collection ready to go through the roof.” Looks. I’m glad an industry is looking up for us.”
During the teaser launch of his upcoming film Bhola, Ajay spoke about Pathan on Tuesday. “Let’s keep our fingers crossed. I want every film to be a super duper hit. Now Pathan is releasing and all the reports we are reading about the advance bookings are looking fantastic, never before. “I’m very happy about it from the bottom up. So I tell everybody that I think we should be very happy about it,” he had said.
He also said, “After the film (Drisham 2) became a super hit, I would say, we need three to four more super hits. Because things have slowed down after the pandemic. We have this habit among people. Need to put it in theaters. See the movie.” Ajay’s last film, the thriller drama Drishyam 2 emerged as the biggest Hindi blockbuster of 2022 by grossing more. ₹280 crore worldwide.
Bhola, directed by Ajay, is the official Hindi remake of the 2019 Tamil hit film Keathi. The original film revolves around an ex-convict who decides to meet his daughter for the first time after being released from prison but ends up in a confrontation between the police and the drug mafia.
The film also stars Tabu, Sanjay Mishra, Deepak Dobriyal, Rae Lakshmi, and Makrand Deshpande in prominent roles. It is all set to hit the theaters on March 30. Bhola is Ajay’s fourth directorial venture after U, Me Aur Hum in 2008, Shivaay in 2016, and Runway 34 in 2022.
Shahrukh’s next film is Pathan, a project of Yash Raj Films, directed by Siddharth Anand. The film also stars Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. Industry experts believe that the film will open somewhere in between. ₹45 to 50 crores at the box office.
