Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan has created history at the box office. The film, which hit the theatres on January 25, is all set to cross Rs 54 crore mark on its opening day. The early estimates suggest that the film is likely to break the record of Yash starrer KGF 2 (Hindi) which had opened to a staggering Rs 53.95 crore.
As per a report in Pinkvilla, the all India opening of Pathaan is looking to fall in the range of Rs 52.00 to 54.00 crore, though the final figures can be higher too depending on where the single screens land from the mass belts.
Meanwhile, actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik tweeted, “25th Jan 2023 is Celebration Day for beloved Mumbai film industry… good days are here again… blockbuster Pathan will cross 50cr today and teaser of Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan shows another blockbuster on its way .
