It’s raining records for Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. After registering the best Day 1 figure, an extraordinary opening weekend, and subsequent weekday figures, Pathaan has now done something that few could have ever imagined. It has become the first Bollywood movie to join the Rs 400 crore net in India.
The feat is even more remarkable when we consider the competition Pathaan was up against. It’s not just any other Bollywood movie but one released by the biggest superstar of Indian cinema. And the fact that it could achieve such a milestone despite its star-studded competition is something that needs to be lauded.
But Pathaan is not the first movie to have made it to the Rs 400 crore nett in India. Tollywood’s Baahubali 2 and Sandalwood’s KGF2 have also achieved this mark. But what makes Pathaan so special is that it is now one of the top 3 movies in Indian cinema to have achieved this feat.
The movie has been received well by all sections of the audience. From critics to fans, everyone has praised the movie and given it their thumbs up. It has also managed to find a place in the hearts of the audience and that is what has made Pathaan a success.
The movie is now expected to become the second-ranking movie in the Rs 400 crore nett in India in the next 3-4 days.
Pathaan, the action thriller directed by Siddharth Anand and starring Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, and Shahrukh Khan, is on the verge of joining the 1000-crore club at the global box office.
The film was released on 25th January, a day before Republic Day 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu languages and is being backed up by Yash Raj Films. Pathaan has been a massive hit and has undoubtedly brought back people to the theatres and ended the dull phase of Bollywood.
