Earlier, some SRK fans in Kolkata took things a notch higher with their celebration on the streets and a video of it has gone viral. It was shared on Twitter by Zee News journalist Pooja Mehta.
The SRK fans took a jumbo garlanded poster of ‘Pathaan’ and mounted it on a horse carriage. They took out a procession with the poster and a whole pipe band played in accompaniment, the whole thing resembling something like a wedding procession.
If you have kept up with the hype surrounding ‘Pathaan’ since its release, you may have come across one poignant scene from a cinema theatre: as Pathaan does a salute at an especially emotional moment in the film, a fan in the hall stands up and salutes Pathaan.
Writer-director Hardik Mehta shared the story in an Instagram post. “We were totally taken by surprise when the guy sitting ahead of us suddenly got up and did a salute in the middle of an ultra emotional scene. For most part of the film he was on some adrenaline high, which the film #Pathaan totally promises," Mehta wrote in part of his post.
