Did Tom Cruise Take Inspiration from Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan? Netizens Draw Comparisons

Netizens claim that Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan, which debuted in January of this year, can be seen in the Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One trailer.

The trailer for Tom Cruise's upcoming movie Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One was released, and it features the comeback of IMF agent Ethan Hunt as he searches for a new weapon that threatens civilization. Action fans have given the action-packed trailer favourable reviews. However, some audience members have made analogies between the trailer and Shah Rukh Khan's earlier in the year released movie Pathaan.

In the first scene of the Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One trailer, Tom Cruise performs risky exploits while putting his life in danger. Fans have been reminded of Shah Rukh Khan's spy thriller Pathaan by scenes in which he hangs off a cliff and a train crashes. Fans of SRK made this observation, which has generated debates about possible parallels between the two films.
