Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan is breaking one after the other records at the box office and is going strong. Pathaan is a much-anticipated spy thriller and gave a big relief to Bollywood. This is an occasion to celebrate for SRK fans. Shah Rukh's colleagues in the industry are showering praise on the massive success of Pathaan.

Actress-producer  Neha Dhupia made some interesting comments after watching Pathaan. She said that only sex and Shah Rukh Khan sells. In fact, her statement is an old one. Around twenty years ago, she made the statement. Back in 2004, Neha Dhupia's bold movie Julie got released and she made the comments.

Either sex or Shah Rukh sells statement created a big uproar. This became a hot topic for the industry, and for outsiders. Her old statement is getting a good response on Twitter as Pathaan is seeing good success.

"Almost two decades back Neha Dhupia had given a statement 'only sex or Shah Rukh Khan sells' and that stays true even today!" said a Twitter user sharing the old statement.

"20 years on, my statement rings true. This is not an 'actor's career' but a 'king's reign'!" Neha Dhupia reacted to the tweet. She also added the King Khan hashtag to her response.

Neha Dhupia made the comments when Priyanshu Chatterjee-Sanjay Kapoor's Julie was released in 2004. Neha played a sex worker in the film. This is the boldest movie of her career. She was in the headlines with her acting in bold bed room scenes.

In an old interview, Neha Dhupia said.. "Julie has love-making scenes and shots exposing my bare back... I'm not affected by the sex symbol tag. It doesn't bother me if people say I have overshadowed Mallika Sherawat and Bipasha Basu by exposing in Julie. In today's time, either sex sells or Shah Rukh Khan. So I would rather be a sex prop in my next five films".
