The leading stars of Pathaan, including Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham, and the makers have opted for a different marketing strategy to promote their upcoming actioner. The team has decided to hold no media interactions or other promotional activities before the film releases worldwide next week.
On the other hand, fans have been asking on social media if Shah Rukh, John, and Deepika will be seen on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote their upcoming actioner. SRK cleared all such speculations on Saturday, January 21, during his #AskSRK session on Twitter and confirmed that he will not be seen on the comedy reality talk show.
When one of the users on the micro-blogging platform asked the actor, “Sir kapil sharma me nahi aa rahe hai kya is baar (Sir, are you not coming to Kapil Sharma this time?), Khan replied, “Bhai seedha movie hall mein aaoonga wahin milte hain (Brother, I will come directly to the theatres, meet you there)”.
