Pathaan Movie: Shahrukh’s Arabic Dialogue Is Making Fans Cheer For The Star

Bollywood sensation’s ‘Pathaan’ has been receiving an overwhelming response from both national and international fans as the film nears collecting Rs500 crore (Dh224.8 million).

Shahrukh’s blockbuster has many memorable scenes. The brand ambassador of Dubai truly represented the city in this movie with his action-packed scenes which were filmed in the emirate.

Besides that, a specific scene that has been gaining popularity, especially in the Gulf, is a scene featuring both leads – Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.

In the scene, Deepika is seen greeting a person by saying ‘Assalamu Alaikum’. Shah Rukh Khan then appears from behind, and gives her a flawlessly traditional response.

“Wa alaykumu salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh”, King Khan responds. Videos circulating online show audiences cheering to the Arabic greeting.

In case you don’t know, the Islamic greeting ‘Assalamu Alaikum’ means ‘Peace be unto you’, whereas its response, used by Shah Rukh Khan in the film, translates to ‘May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you too’.

The success of Shah Rukh Khan’s (SRK) blockbuster comeback movie, ‘Pathaan’, which created records of sorts by becoming the highest-grosser for the star on its opening day, has left trade experts wondering how the Bollwyood superstar managed to achieve the feat.

According to reports, the action-thriller raked in more than Rs500 million in India and also entered the Rs1 billion club on Day 1 at the global box office.

As per trade analyst Taran Adarsh, ‘Pathaan’ made over Rs550 million on the first day of its release.

The figures beat the opening day collection of Hrithik Roshan’s War (Rs510 million) and Yash’s KGF: 2 Hindi (Rs530 million).
