In a recent media interaction, Shah Rukh Khan who was last seen in Pathaan also starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles, spoke about flaunting his eight pack abs in Jhoome Jo Pathaan song and the younger generation found his physique much ‘cool’
Taking about the same Khan said, "When they (director Siddharth Anand and choreographer Bosco Martis) were doing Jhoome Jo Pathaan song, I think a conspiracy was hatched to make me go shirtless. There was no way that I was sure about doing it (taking my shirt off) but then they made me do it!"
He added: "I think it was already planned that slowly, slowly, they will start opening my buttons. I have never done my signature steps with abs! So, ya, it took a lot of takes, a lot of takes. I'm very happy now when youngsters, my kids see me on screen and say damn cool body papa! I feel very happy but it is really scary! I don't know if I will be able to do it again."
About what he loves about the chartbuster song Jhoome Jo Pathaan, the actor said, "Jhoome Jo Pathaan is a song that I feel makes you want to dance. Just wanted to do a step which everyone can do with ease. It comes when it's like all things are done well now and so let's celebrate, it's a party song in the film."
Pathaan is directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra, the film also stars Ashutosh Rana and Dimple Kapadia in pivotal roles. The film released on January 25 and surpassed several box office records.
