In an interview with the PinkVilla, John Abraham had shared how his Pathaan co-star Shah Rukh Khan is responsible for his success. He had shared, “Shah Rukh Khan is, how do I say, he’s responsible for where I am because when I started modelling he was the judge in the show. So I owe a lot to Shah Rukh probably for him it was just another competition that he judged. There’s a lot of deep-rooted respect that I have that I can’t really talk about. But, he’s a wonderful person. He’s very charming, he’s lovely and supremely intelligent. That’s all I can say.”
The Jhootha Hi Sahi actor had further said, “I can’t speak more than this because Pathaan is still being made. I’m going back to shoot for Pathaan now in the whole of April. It’s an honour working with him.”
