‘Pathaan’ has now become the highest grossing Hindi film worldwide in the history of Hindi cinema and also the highest grossing film of YRF’s Spy Universe’. ‘Pathaan’, which has been bankrolled YRF, has the biggest superstars of the country in the form of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in it. Speaking of Shah Rukh Khan, it’s a no-brainer to say that his charm can sweep anyone off their feet. So, when someone says that his film or he in particular didn't impress someone, it seems odd more so to the man in question. So, when a social media user told SRK on Twitter that their child didn't like 'Pathaan', the superstar had a humble yet witty reply up his sleeve. Replying to a video posted by a social media user in which his daughter said that she didn't like 'Pathaan', SRK tweeted, "Oh oh!! Have to work harder now. Back to the drawing board."
He then smartly plugged in the dialogue from 'Pathaan' that he says during the post-credit scene, "Can't let the younger audience be disappointed. Desh ke youth ka sawaal hai." The actor also advice the parent to try showing the classic love story 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' to the kid, "PS: Try DDLJ on her please...maybe she is the romantic types...kids u never know."
