Mumbai. Shah Rukh Khan’s much awaited film ‘Pathan’ has been released at the box office. The film received positive response from the audience and critics on the first day. Scenes, videos and pictures of the film went viral on social media. Loved the action scenes, Shah Rukh’s entry, Salman Khan’s cameo in the film. People were seen dancing on ‘Jhoome Jo Pathan’ in theatres. Its videos were also shared by the audience including celebs. So many critics have claimed that ‘Pathan’ has collected more than 100 crores worldwide in the opening day itself.

Critics have given ‘Pathan’ 4 and a half stars out of 3.5 stars. Today another film was released on the big screen to give competition to the film with such merits. This film has been directed by veteran director Rajkumar Santoshi. The name of the film is ‘Gandhi Godse: Ek Yudh’. Like ‘Pathan’, this film has also been embroiled in controversies since the trailer came out. The film has been opposed in many places.

Rajkumar Santoshi, the director of ‘Gandhi Godse: Ek Yudh’, was receiving threats for this. In its promotion event, many people showed him black flags. The people protesting said that the film tarnishes the image of Mahatma Gandhi, while glorifying Nathuram Godse, who killed him. Although Rajkumar Santoshi says that this film shows the war of two ideas.

In ‘Gandhi Godse: Ek Yudh’, shows the ideological war between Nathuram Godse and Mahatma Gandhi. The film stars many veteran and talented actors including Deepka Antani, Chinmay Mandlekar, Tanisha Santoshi, Anuj Saini and Pawan Chopra. The film has been released on the big screen today. But it has to be seen how much this film affects Pathan’s collection. Or else ‘Pathan’ will stop the earnings of this film with its storm.

‘Pathan’ stars veteran actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. It is directed by Siddharth Anand. This is a spy universe. The film has received a very good response from the audience on the opening day.
