Pathan is now amongst the highly anticipated releases of Bollywood. Interestingly, even though an official announcement is yet to be made, the buzz is sky-high. And why not, as it will be witnessing Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback on the big screen after a gap of 3 years. With each passing day, the film is garnering a blockbuster sort of hype with the makers leaving no stone unturned. In today’s piece, we’ll be enlightening you with some facts and luck factor which is shared between director Siddharth Anand, SRK and musical duo, Vishal Shekhar, who’ll be composing the music for the film.
The fact that the duo of Vishal Shekhar is on board for Pathan is really wonderful news for all hardcore SRK fans. No, we aren’t just speaking of their chartbuster albums but the duo has been really lucky for both director Siddharth Anand and SRK.
Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani have worked on several Shah Rukh Khan projects. The duo has given hits through Om Shaanti Om, Ra. One, Chennai Express, Happy New Year and other projects. To explain how their presence is important for SRK, let us inform you that till Happy New Year (the last film of SRK to be composed by the duo), the star had a golden run at the box office. In fact, Chennai Express and Happy New Year are his highest grossers ever. Interestingly, since Happy New Year, Khan’s any film hasn’t performed as expected. So, from that point of view, Pathan has a tick in one of its boxes.
Now, let’s speak about Vishal Shekhar’s track record with Siddharth Anand. For those who aren’t aware, Anand has directed 6 films in total- Salaam Namaste, Ta Ra Rum Pum, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Anjaana Anjaani, Bang Bang and War. The music of all these films has been composed by Vishal Shekhar. Not just that the songs of these films topped the charts, but even the films turned out to be huge successes with War being 300 crore+ grosser. So for Anand too, the musical duo is nothing less than a lucky charm.
So, in that sense, the collaboration of Vishal Shekhar, Siddharth Anand and Shah Rukh Khan is screaming- Pathan is a blockbuster on the way!
