Shah Rukh Khan promoted his upcoming film Pathaan ahead of FIFA World Cup 2022 finale match between Argentina and France in Qatar. The actor was joined by former footballer, Wayne Rooney. During their fun interaction, the superstar answered Wayne Rooney's million-dollar question, "Who is Pathaan?" and also made the footballer do his trademark hug pose. Wayne asked SRK about his character, "Who is Pathaan?" and added, "Is he similar to anyone in football?" To this, the actor replied, "I'm not saying this because you are here. Honestly I will tell you who Pathaan is. Pathaan is the guy you call last minute when you are all tied up and you can't find a solution."
Shah Rukh Khan added, "For me, if you don't mind me saying, if Pathaan is to be equated to any footballer in the world, before or after or later, it will always be you. You are the tough guy." Check out the viral clip from the panel conversation below:
