Pathan Trivia: Did you know the mastermind behind Salman Khan’s cameo scene in Pathaan?

Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham starrer Pathaan hit theatres on 25 January 2023. Ever since its release, the film has been breaking box-office records with each passing day. One moment in the film, that grabbed everyone’s attention was Salman Khan’s cameo.


But do you know who wrote that scene? Here is what we know.

It’s screenwriter Shridhar Raghavan (Khakee, Dum Maaro Dum, endless episodes of C.I.D.), who wrote Pathaan based on director Siddharth Anand’s story. He was the one to effortlessly chalk out that scene.

In a recent media interaction Sridhar revealed that although he wrote the film’s screenplay, he is not the one who deserves praise for this particular scene because he had very little to do with this scene. Talking about this particular scene Sridhar said, “That scene is actually written by Adi sir (Aditya Chopra). I didn’t write it. Whoever sees the screenplay credit, they see Sridhar. But that scene is written by Adi sir and that placement is genius. Putting it right there, it was beautiful. I was taken aback. I didn’t expect it. I am involved as a screenplay writer. And when I was watching the edit, I thought this was a great scene. I was like ‘I don’t remember writing this scene’. He (Aditya Chopra) laughed and said he wrote this. He knew what he wanted, he’s a genius and the result is for everyone to see.”


Pathaan, is part of Aditya Chopra’s ambitious spy universe after Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) and War (2019).
