Pathaan Day 6 Box Office Collection: John Abraham reveals why he wanted to kiss Shah Rukh Khan; gets kissed by King Khan during press meet


While Shah Rukh Khan may have grabbed all the limelight on the success of Pathaan after it broke all box office records, critics have applauded the role of John Abraham in the film. But, when the star cast of Pathaan took the centre stage to speak to the media on Monday, John revealed how he wanted to kiss Shah Rukh on several occasions in the film. John said that while he had the image of an action hero, the success of Pathaan had established Shah Rukh as the ‘number one action hero’ in India.

“Sha Rukh, I don’t think he’s an actor anymore, he’s an emotion. It’s beautiful. That’s why I nearly went to kiss him in a lot of scenes. It’s a beautiful experience,” he said.

John didn’t stop here as he continued, “When you see someone like Shah Rukh after four years and looking so good. I used to think I am an action hero. But, I think Shah Rukh today is the number one action hero in the country.”
