Mumbai, February 8 - Pathaan continues to hold well after a fantastic second weekend where it emerged as one of the biggest second weekends ever. As per the early estimates, the movie scored around 6.50-7 crores net on its third Wednesday.
The film is showing a drop of around 10-12% daily which is a good sign. The ticket rates of the film are now more to regular levels and hence the collections are looking good only but with the same pricing as on weekends, the collections would have been excellent. The ticket rates should have been kept on the higher side as it would have helped the film to cross the Bahubali2 numbers which are still possible but not easy.
The third Wednesday collections will take the total collections of Pathaan to around 453Cr net box office mark becoming the only Bollywood film in history to cross this landmark. The film needs around 50Cr to join the 500cr mark which will make it one of the biggest blockbusters of the last 15 years and 60cr to emerge as the highest-grossing film ever in Hindi languages.
Pathaan has a free run of another week or so and this has proved to be a huge plus for the film. There should be higher footfalls in the next couple of days for Pathaan due to valentine's week which although is not an official holiday but multiplexes do see higher walk-ins. The worldwide numbers are historic and overseas numbers are never seen before for Pathaan. The type of run Pathaan witnessed overseas will make its record stand for many many years to come.
