Pro-BJP Kangana Ranaut had first praised the film before performing a U-turn to launch her social media rant against the film and Shah Rukh Khan.
She had written on Facebook, “All those who are claiming Pathan is triumph of love over hate, I agree but whose love over whose hate? Let’s be precise, whose is buying tickets and making it a success?Yes it is India’s love and inclusiveness where eighty percent Hindus lives and yet a film called Pathan..Which shows our enemy nation Pakistan and ISIS in good light is running successfully, it is this spirit of India 🇮🇳 beyond hate and judgements that makes it Mahan. (sic)”
Filmmaker Karan Johar had taken a dig at the boycott gang while announcing the return of the ‘King,’ Karan had said that the king had gone nowhere but was only waiting for appropriate time to rule. Shah Rukh’s fans have affectionately called him the king of Bollywood.
