Pathan Box Office Prediction: Strong craze and protest is also being seen regarding Shah Rukh Khan’s film Pathaan. Protests are being held against the movie at many places, but SRK’s fans are overwhelming this protest. Shahrukh is back on screen after four years and the excitement was visible in the advance booking. It is being told that the film has broken the record of ‘Brahmastra’ in terms of earnings and is also seen giving tough competition to Yash’s ‘KGF 2’. Let us know about this in detail.
Advance booking of 10,81,091 tickets, earned crores of rupees
First of all, let us tell you that the budget of Spy Universe film ‘Pathan’ made under the banner of Yash Raj Films is Rs 250 crores. It has been released on 5500 screens in the country, while on 2500 screens abroad. Apart from Hindi, it has also been released in Tamil and Telugu languages. According to the information, the first day gross collection of ‘Pathan’ is 50 crores and the net collection is 40-45 crores. Talking about advance booking of tickets, advance booking of 10,81,091 tickets has been done for the opening day in all languages.
Second bumper opening after KGF 2
‘Pathan’ has taken an average bumper opening of around 60 per cent. This is the second bumper opening after KGF 2 after the Corona epidemic. The occupancy of the film is slightly lower than that of ‘KGF 2’, but its release is wider and has more potential than that film.
Tremendous response received in these cities
The Wednesday afternoon show on single screens has received an overwhelming response. Housefull shows have gone to many small centers like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. There are some places in the Hindi circuit where it is not up to the level of ‘War’ or ‘KGF 2’, but that is mainly because the film releases on a Wednesday and it is not a holiday. Both ‘War’ and ‘KGF 2’ were released on holidays. There was a national holiday for ‘War’. If we keep this in mind, ‘Pathan’ has got a great response and due to the National Holiday on 26th January, this response can be doubled.
New records will be seen!
The Hindi version will see new records in the South India circuit, but the ‘holiday factor’ will probably keep it below ‘KGF 2’ in most Hindi circuits. However, will challenge national holiday releases like ‘War’ and ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. The film opens as a big boost for the struggling industry and post-holiday shows that there is business potential if the product is right.
Shahrukh’s stardom was intact
‘Pathan’ will be seen as the comeback of Shah Rukh Khan, but in reality it is not so, as his stardom has always been intact. It was always about choosing the ‘right’ film and ‘Pathan’ ticked the right boxes, as the numbers (box office collections) were going to be tough with Shah Rukh Khan’s traditional style of romance. It would have been great if he had done a film like this in the 2010-2020 decade, but it didn’t happen. Films like ‘Don’ have been done before, but those films go more towards thriller zone than action.

‘Pathan’ joined this list
Shahrukh Khan has had many bumper opening and record opening in the past too, but the three films which have seen the craze on the first day are ‘Karan Arjun’, ‘Koyla’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’. Now ‘Pathan’ is up with those films. Had it released on a national holiday, ‘Pathan’ might have stood alone on the top today, as the ‘holiday factor’ makes all the difference when compared to the days of these three films. The release is much bigger than before and ‘Pathan’ is the biggest till date. There are more people to watch the film on a holiday, which takes the film further.
