After Pathaan’s enormous success, The Kashmir Files filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri recently praised Shah Rukh Khan. Vivek Agnihotri lambasted those who opposed the movie days after criticising the song Besharam Rang from the movie, which caused controversy before its release.

Vivek stated on Twitter last year that he received threats as a result of his remarks about Besharam Rang. He had posted a video criticising the song, in which Deepika and Shah Rukh were shown having a romantic encounter in Spain. Vivek had tweeted, “WARNING… video against Bollywood. Don’t watch it if you are  secular.”

Some individuals criticised the song’s lyrics and costumes once Besharam Rang was released. A couple of them also demanded a movie boycott. During a Carvaka Podcast, Vivek Agnihotri said, “Pathaan worked purely because of the charisma and fan following of Shah Rukh, the way he marketed it and the way he took it on his shoulders that ‘it is my film and I am responsible for it’, which is pretty good.”

Vivek also stated,“I also think that some credit should also go to people who were making stupid statements against the film and people who were unnecessarily protesting and asking for boycotts. These are different people from the regular ‘boycott Bollywood gang’. There is one kind that is always saying ‘boycott Bollywood’ for everything for many years. These were new players in the market and there was no need for them to do this. There were some violent factors who were saying we will burn this and burn that and that, I think, also contributed to this. And of course, our media channels.”

After surpassing Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) and Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar, Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand, is now the fifth-highest grossing Indian movie in history. Pathaan has crossed 965 Cr gross worldwide.
