As quoted by news agency ANI, Siddharth said, "Just like every filmmaker, I also had a wish list to once work with Shah Rukh Khan. I think you have to earn a Shah Rukh Khan film, I think it was my journey which I completed and that is when I got a gift to direct Shah Rukh Khan. Pathaan aayi hai, hit hui hai. Uske baad kya banayege (Pathaan has been released, and it has been a hit. What will we make after that?". While fans screamed Pathaan 2, Siddharth replied, "Insha allah (God willing)".

Shah Rukh said, "This is a big day for us, my family. We haven't experienced this happiness in a while. Whenever he (Siddharth Anand) wants me to do Pathaan 2, I'll do it. If they want to make a sequel, it'll be my honour to do it."

Pathaan is on a record-breaking run at the domestic and international box office as it collected 542 crore gross worldwide in just five days. Helmed by Siddharth, Pathaan was released on January 25.
