Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap can’t stop raving about actor Shah Rukh Khan‘s recent release, Pathaan. The filmmaker went to watch the first day, first show along with actor Karan Mehta and called Shah Rukh’s film ‘khatarnak’.

Pathaan released in theatres on Wednesday and according to early estimates, the film is expected to give an opening of over Rs 50 crore. The film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.

Anurag gave his reaction outside the cinema hall where he went to watch the show in Mumbai and said, “Shah Rukh Khan itna haseen, itna sundar pehle kabhi laga nahi. Toh hum toh usko dekhne aaye the aur dil khush ho gaya. Aur itna khatarnaka action hai, Shah Rukh ke liye pehli baar aisa role hai. Mujhe nahi lagta unhone is tarah ka action pehle kiya hai.Kya body banayi hai (Shah Rukh Khan has never looked this beautiful and we came to watch him. Such dangerous action, this is the first of a kind role for Shah Rukh. I don’t think he has done anything like it before).”

Karan Mehta, who recently starred in Anurag’s film Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat, too looked happy after watching the film. Pathaan has been receiving support from friends in the film industry including Anil Kapoor, Vishal Dadlani, Sunil Grover amongst others.

Shubra Gupta of Indian Express reviewed the film and wrote, “The film comes at a time when Bollywood, and SRK have been under siege. ‘Pathaan’ is that sateek jawaab of this beleaguered pathaan, who manages multiple feats in his come-back after a clutch of medium-bad to terrible films : gives it those ones to the #BoycottBollywood brigade, pulls off the dishy-and-dishevelled look rippling those abs, give us a laugh-out-loud moment ( I won’t ruin it for you, but it involves a line from an early SRK character, also in a YRF film, which would have become eminently meme-worthy if memes were a thing those days) and saves Bharat Mata.”
