King Khan Shah Rukh is smashing the old records and creating new ones at a rapid pace with his ‘Pathaan’. This spy action thriller is minted 100 crores per day at the box office and stunned everyone. The movie is showing no signs of slowing down as it grossed 650 crores in just a week. Trade experts are predicting that it may cross the 1000 crore mark by the end of its theatrical run. Even Karthik Aryan who is considered the most promising hero in recent times decided to postpone his ‘Shehzada’ from 10th February to 17th due to the euphoria created by ‘Pathaan’.
The craze of ‘Pathaan’ in the overseas market is amazing too. Sources say that there are chances of this film crossing the collections of ‘RRR’ and ‘Baahubali 2’ even without getting released in Japan and China. There is no option for the North audience other than ‘Pathaan’ as every theatre is screening it. There is no competition for this movie right now and it set a benchmark by being the fastest Bollywood film to collect 300 crores share. Even the Hindi dubbed version of ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ which is at the top spot right now took 10 days to get 300 crores share.
Shah Rukh Khan has provided a feast to his fans after a sabbatical of four years. They expected a decent action flick but they were offered a movie with splendid action sequences, epic elevation scenes, special cameos, a high dose of glamour and many more. People expected it to be another ‘War’ but ‘Pathaan’ turned out to be more than that and all the flaws were covered by the massive aura of SRK. Siddharth Anand is planning to release his next movie ‘Fighter’ with Hrithik Roshan on the same day next year i.e 25th January 2024.
