Shah Rukh Khan has not only given his comeback with his latest film Pathaan, but he also brought back the glory of Bollywood and revived the Hindi film Market. Pathaan, directed by Siddharth Anand. The spy-thriller has been smashing the records ever since its release on January 25.
After a sensational opening of Rs 57 crore, the film earned Rs 70 crore on its second day, Rs 39 crore on its third day and picked up again over the weekend with Rs 53 crore, and it collected Rs 60 crore on the fifth day (Sunday).
Pathaan box office over the extended weekend has reached the Rs 275 crore (net) mark in India itself. Pathaan is also the fastest film in the history to enter the Rs 200 CR club, beating KGF 2 and Baahubali 2’s Hindi version, which crossed the mark on their day fifth and sixth, respectively.
Pathaan had already broken records with its opening of Rs 57 crore, which is the highest single day in India and has now the highest opening weekend as well. The film is now marching towards Dangal, which has collected Rs 387 CR and become the all-time highest grossing Hindi film.
Not only in India, Pathaan is also creating records internationally as well, with the film collecting a whopping Rs 542 crore in only five days of release.
Pathaan’s numbers come as a celebration and a massive relief for Shah Rukh Khan, as he returned to films after four years. His earlier films Zero, Fan, and Jab Harry Met Sejal gained little success at the box office. It’s also a boost for Bollywood, as the film industry had a less percentage of hits last year, with only a few crossing the Rs 200 crore mark.
