Shah Rukh Khan Teases His ‘First Heroine’ Renuka Shahane, Pathaan Co-Star Ashutosh Rana Joins

New Delhi: Actor Renuka Shahane posted photos of herself and her spouse and actor Ashutosh Rana enjoying a date to see his most recent movie, ‘Pathaan’. On Sunday, Renuka shared the selfies that Ashutosh had taken on Twitter. Shah Rukh Khan responded to the post by teasing Renuka for being his “first heroine.”

Ashutosh and Renuka, who were dressed in ethnic garb, were seen in the first picture sitting inside a car. The second selfie appeared to be taken inside the theatre as the couple smiled and posed for the camera. “Finally going to watch #Pathaan. Mausam bilkul sahi hai, kursi ki peti baandh li hai (The weather is good, have fastened the seat beltts). With Col Luthra ji,” Renuka wrote.

Colonel Sunil Luthra is a character played by Ashutosh Rana in the recent blockbuster ‘Pathaan’, starring Shah Rukh Khan as the lead. Meanwhile, the latter starred along side Shahane in his 1989 TV series ‘Circus’.

In response to this tweet, Shah Rukh Khan wrote, “Col Luthraji ko bataya aapne ki aap meri pehli heroine hain!! Or should we keep it a Top Secret otherwise he may fire me from the agency!!! (Did you tell Col Luthra that you are my first heroine. Should we keep this top secret else he many fire me).”

“Hahaha unsey koi baat chhupti kahaan hai? Aaphi ne unhe antaryaami kahaa hai aur chaahey jo ho jaaye, woh aapko fire nahi kar saktey kyunki jo kaam aap kartey hain woah koi aur nahi kar saktaa. (Can’t hide anything from him; you only called him all seeing. Whatever happens, he cannot fire you because what you do can’t be done by anyone else),” Renuka tweeted.

Ashutosh Rana also replied on the tweet thread and wrote, “Aapki age is increasing with time. Luthra is worried whether he will remain in the next mission or not? Because in the last scene, you told Luthra to say, sword bhi pathan ki aur rules bhi pathan ke… (People’s age increases with time, your edge is increasing. Luthra is worried whether he will remain in the next mission or not? Because in the last scene you got Luthra to say that Pathan’s sword and Pathan’s rules too..) Superb electrifying performance by you @iamsrk ji..congratulations.”

‘Pathaan’, directed by Siddharth Anand, also features Deepika Padukone as a police officer and John Abraham as the film’s antagonist. The spy thriller released on January 25 in theatres.
