Along with Salman, Kabir Khan’s directorial venture also starred Harshaali Malhotra, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles. The movie showcased the journey of a man who decides to reunite a lost speech-impaired Pakistani girl child with her parents. On the other hand, PK narrated the journey of an alien who questions the religious beliefs of people.
