I had missed being with him on screen so it all turned out as it should…and that Tiger scarf I am keeping as a memento!!” he added.
On the other hand, Salman also opened up about his onscreen reunion with Shah Rukh. He credited producer Aditya Chopra for it. “Given how closely Adi has known Shah Rukh and me, he truly managed to capture how we are as personalities in the scenes. This is why people are loving us on screen. Also, the way Sidharth executed the sequence and presented us was just brilliant. I’m happy for Shah Rukh and YRF for all the records that Pathaan is achieving. It is a huge win for Indian cinema that we are able to bring people back to the theatres after the pandemic.”
