Mumbai, January 29 - The mega-blockbuster Pathaan continues to dominate the box office as the early estimate suggests around 62 crores net on the first Sunday. No other film in history has collected even 55cr on any single day in Hindi while Pathaan has done that multiple times which is nothing but an extraordinary feat.
The Sunday number will come as the second-highest single day ever just behind the second day of Pathaan. The top 3 single days are of Pathaan only at 68 cr, 60 cr*, and 57 cr. The film has broken each and every record to date by a huge margin and it would be impossible for any film shortly to break these records.
The first Sunday collections will take the entire extended five-day weekend collections to around the 280 cr mark. Only 7-8 Hindi films have collected more than Pathaan in their lifetime run and Pathaan will cross all those films to be at the top. Dangal is the highest-grossing film in the Hindi film industry at around the 390cr mark and Pathaan should cross this number by next Sunday.
A lot will depend on Monday and the film should hold well. The two most important days for a long grosser are always Monday and Friday and if Pathaan manages to hold well on these two days for the next couple of weeks then the film will have a shot at the legendary 500cr club as well which to date has been crossed only once and that too by Bahubali2 - The Conclusion which is the biggest hit of last 20 years.
