Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has been on a roll at the box office, proving that the King of Bollywood still holds his throne strong even after a four-year hiatus. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in pivotal roles, making it one of the most awaited releases of the year. And now, on its 34th day at the box office, the film has shown an incredible trend, flirting with the 1 crore mark!
According to early trends, Pathaan has earned somewhere between 0.95-1.05 crores on its 5th Monday, which is truly commendable. Despite facing competition from other releases, the film has been able to withstand it all, proving that Shah Rukh Khan’s star power still has the potential to pull in crowds to the theaters.
With its overall Indian box office collection standing at 526.71-526.81 crores (inclusive of all languages), Pathaan has already broken several box office records, creating new ones in the process. And with the next big Hindi release, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, not scheduled to hit theaters anytime soon, it seems like Pathaan will continue to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future.
The film has benefited immensely from increased showings across the country, as Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi’s Selfiee has seen a considerable reduction in its showcasing. This has only worked in Pathaan’s favor, as more and more people are flocking to theaters to witness the superstar’s comeback.
The success of Pathaan has not only been a victory for Shah Rukh Khan, but also for the entire industry, as it shows that there is still a huge demand for big-budget Bollywood films that offer a complete entertainment package. With the pandemic having caused massive disruptions in the film industry, the success of Pathaan comes as a much-needed relief to producers and distributors alike.
All in all, Pathaan’s incredible performance at the box office is a testament to Shah Rukh Khan’s star power and his immense popularity among the masses. It is indeed true that there is nothing called overdose of Shah Rukh Khan, as the superstar continues to win hearts with his performances and charm.
