Karan Johar is among the Bollywood celebs who caught Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan on the first of its release and like many, he had some brilliant things to say about the movie. While he praised the actors, the filmmaker, who has oftentimes collaborated with South talents for movies, has claimed that Pathaan has managed to reposition Bollywood’s stature. He has shared his love for Bollywood and rightly stated that when Bollywood comes to its own, no one can stand in its way.
Karan shared an Instagram post to express in detail how he felt about Pathaan. “You may have been slandered and “boycotted” but no one can deny that when you come into your own no one can stand in your way!,” a part of his post read.
The filmmaker began praising Pathaan by stating that he had a fun time watching the movie, which is in a long time. He did not only start with that but also mentioned that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s camaraderie in the movie made him stand up and clap for them.
Here's his post:
The filmmaker called Pathaan ‘mega’ and went right on to praising the cast and crew of the film, mainly SRK, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, director Siddharth Anand and of course, YRF’s Aditya Chopra.
While praising SRK as charming and charismatic, Karan also mentioned about the actor’s superstardom, how desirable he is and last but not the least, his sheer brilliance when it comes to the role and his on-screen appearance. For Deepika, he had tags like ‘hottest, beautiful and sensationally gorgeous.’ When it came to the antagonist John, though, KJo kept it sweet and simple. He called John ‘the sexiest and most desirable villain.’
Praising WAR director Siddharth Anand, Karan wrote, “He knows how to mount a film like very few can.” When it came to Adi Chopra, KJo was of the opinion that his vision and brilliance are ‘insurmountable.’
Joining in the praises for the movie and King Khan, Karan Johar added, “He went no where he just waited for the right time to RULE!” Much like the man who lives, breathes and loves Bollywood, KJo signed off writing, “Pathaan Mubarak to all!”
