en Bollywood News 6 Easter eggs in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan you may not have noticed

2023's first mega blockbuster, Pathaan, is creating a rampage at the box office. The film is being loved not just for its tight script, music, scale, action, patriotism and of course the performances of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, but also because it has some very exciting and unexpected Easter eggs. These are related to scenes and dialogues of past films, some of which belong to the YRF (Yash Raj Films) spy universe, just like Pathaan. Bollywood Hungama, in this special feature, lists out these Easter Eggs

6 Easter eggs in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan you may not have noticed

1. One of the most hilarious scenes in the film is when Pathaan infiltrates the bedroom of a lady named Karen, who possesses the key to the safe where 'rakht beej' is stored, in Moscow's Woskwich Tower. Karen was supposed to be fast asleep after unknowingly consuming sleeping pills. But when Pathaan is taking her fingerprints, she unexpectedly wakes up. At this moment, Pathaan sings the iconic song of Darr (1993), 'Tu Hai Meri Kiran'. But he replaces Kiran with Karen not just while singing the song but also when mouthing the iconic dialogue, ‘K-K-K-K-Kiran’. As expected, viewers went crazy at this point.

2. Pathaan and Rubina (Deepika Padukone) discussing how to steal 'rakht beej' leads to Pathaan uttering '7 din Rakht beej in'. It was an inspiration to the '6 din ladki in' sequence from Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), starring Shah Rukh, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan.

3. The famous number of War (2019), 'Ghungroo Toot Gaye', is mentioned by Pathaan in his entry scene. Interestingly, War, starring Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor, was also a part of YRF Spy Universe.

4. Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan coming together and fighting the baddies made for enough entertainment. Yet, the makers enhanced the scene by infusing humour. Tiger (Salman Khan) exclaiming "Bhaag Pathaan Bhaag" was a direct homage to the "Bhaag Arjun Bhaag" scene from Karan Arjun (1995), which featured both of them in leading roles.

5. Certain observant moviegoers have noticed that the background score used in Pathaan and Tiger's scene is the same that was used in War.

6. Finally, the mid-credit scene of Pathaan and Tiger is highly entertaining. It shows both the spies thinking of retiring after 30 years of service. But they are unable to think of a replacement and hence, decide to continue working. It became obvious to each and every moviegoer that they mirrored the real-life scenario of the industry as they are still the ruling stars and no one comes close.
