Speaking about SRK's Jawan and Pathaan, Vivek Agnihotri believes the star's latest flicks are 'superficial' and that he can do much better. "Whichever films have been released. Those that I have watched, I found them very superficial. They are okay at the level of an action film but to present them as a standard of filmmaking and that this is the end of show business, I don’t agree with that. Then I think it’s a psycho frenzy. I have a problem with that," he said.
