Yasir Hussain says 'Pathaan' is a video game without a storyline

Actor also drew parallels with 'Mission: Impossible'

Entertainment Desk March 27, 2023

Actor Yasir Hussain is always known to voice his views without any filters. This time, the Aik Thi Laila director compared Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's latest record-breaking film, Pathaan, to a "video game” that lacks a proper storyline.

While the action-thriller film has broken several box offices records this year and has received praise from fans worldwide, Hussain still seemed unimpressed.

Taking to Instagram, the Badshah Begum star took a jibe at the film’s storyline by comparing it to Mission: Impossible. "Even if you have seen the first part of Mission: Impossible, you will not find Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan any better than a videogame that does not have a story," wrote Hussain, while sharing a screenshot of the Khan starrer.

Actor commented on the film after Pathaan premiered on Amazon Prime after more than 50 days of run in theatres. Even though Hussain did not sing praises for the Indian blockbuster, many other Pakistani artists have celebrated Khan's triumphant return to the big screen.

In January 2023, Samina Peerzada tweeted, 'Bravo, Shah Rukh Khan and congratulations on winning love over hate." Anoushey Ashraf also took to Instagram and heaped praises on King Khan. Penning a note, the famous RJ and host commented, "As much as people dislike him, as much as Pakistanis feel we shouldn't promote Bollywood, for me Shah Rukh Khan is a universal superstar."

She went on to add, "As artists, we believe we connect to people beyond borders (which is an awful man-made concept), the world only knows us humans and this human has done remarkable stull and speak ever so eloquently." Ashraf ended her note with, "Forever a fan of Shah Rukh Khan!"
