Pathaan’s action sequence starring Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan was a smash hit! However, a Twitter user pointed out that the entire scenario was inspired by Jackie Chan’s anime series.
Pathaan x Tiger Scene ‘Copied’
Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, two of Bollywood’s most famous Khans, reunited for a scene in Pathaan, sparking a social media craze. In the film, the ‘Karan Arjun’ duo appeared in an action-packed scene. Some internet users, however, have found that the Train scene in ‘Pathaan’ was “copied” from an animated film. One such post was shared on Twitter by ‘The Intrepid,’ who said that the sequence was “inspired” by a scene from an old Jackie Chan cartoon.
The user even provided samples to demonstrate the apparent similarity in sequences. While Pathaan was released in 2023, the cartoon ran between 2001 to 2005.
Salman Khan appeared in Shah Rukh Khan’s flick, fighting goons and bombers on a moving train that crashes into a deep ditch. They do, however, make it. In the same manner, an animated Jackie Chan fights gangsters in a moving train as if it were a piece of cake, and he saves himself by running backward in a train that crashes into a trench. Pathaan and Tiger’s sequence is a frame-by-frame duplicate of the cartoon series, according to netizens.
