To call Pathaan a superhit would be quite an understatement. The film, which opened in theatres last week, continues its stellar run at the box office (more on that later). Amid all the buzz around the film, one of the Pathaan stars decided to check the audiences response in the theater on Sunday night. We are talking about Deepika Padukone. The actress visited Mumbai's Gaiety Galaxy theatre where she watched the film. However, the actress hid her face under a black hoodie and a black mask.

Ahead of the Pathaan release, a Twitter user had asked Shah Rukh Khan during a Twitter AMA session if he has ever went to a theatre to check fans' reactions. "Have you ever sneak (sic) into a theatre to watch your own movie to see the reaction of the fans," asked a fan. SRK's reply was this: "No haven't done that for a long time....Also haven't had a release na...For Pathaan maybe it's that kind of film that should be watched in an audience packed hall."

Meanwhile, the film's lead actor Shah Rukh Khan surprised fans on Sunday evening. He waved and blew kisses at his fans stationed outside his Mumbai residence Mannat. "Mehmaan Nawaazi Pathaan ke ghar par. ( hospitality at Pathaan's house)...Thank you all my Mehmaans (guests) for making my Sunday so full of love. Grateful. Happy. Loved."
