Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan is shattering box office records
Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan became the highest-earning Hindi film after beating SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan is shattering records at the Box office. After an extended dry spell that the Hindi Cinema has gone through barring some films like Brahmastra and Drishyam 2, the Yash Raj spy-thriller has rightly instilled hope in the entertainment industry. With the film crossing the Rs 500 crore mark at the box office, Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Films are as ambitious as ever about their spy universe. While it’s been over a month since the film was released, it surely comes as a big achievement for Shah Rukh Khan and the team that the adrenaline-pumping flick maintained its trajectory despite films like Shehzada and Selfiee that were released in between.
If Sacnilk’s box office estimates were to be believed, Pathaan minted Rs 1.20 crores on the sixth Friday of its run bringing the nett collection of the film to Rs 528.89 crores. Several enticing deals in the domestic market like buy one get one offer and low ticket pricing helped, Pathaan’s lifetime collection stands at Rs 1026 crores with Rs 640 crores amassed from India and Rs 386 crores coming from the overseas market. From Gauri Khan to Sidharth Anand, everyone celebrated the fact that Pathaan surpassed the Hindi version of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali The Conclusion with Rs 510.99 crore to become the highest-earning Hindi film.
