At the same time, SRK also addressed the hate campaign which has started against his upcoming film ‘Pathaan’. This is what he said in the speech, “Social media is often driven by a certain narrowness of view that limits human nature to its baser self. I read somewhere that negativity increases social media consumption and thereby increases its commercial value as well. Such pursuits enclose the collective narrative, making it divisive and destructive.”

Pathaan is basically a spy thriller produced under the YRF banner. The film has been directed by Siddharth Anand. The film is expected to release on January 25, 2023. The film also stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in their respective pivotal roles.
