Mumbai, February 2 - Superstar Shah Rukh Khan's "Pathaan" is showing no sign of fatigue as it is recording blockbuster collections at the box office. The Siddharth Anand's directed flick scored a mammoth opening weekend and carried that momentum into weekdays.
Also starring John Abraham and Deepika Padukone, "Pathaan" has completed 8 days at the box office, scoring 348.50 crores net in all languages, including 336 crores net in the Hindi language alone. It has now become (as I type this) the biggest domestic scorer in Yash Raj Films' spy universe, beating Salman Khan's "Tiger Zinda Hai".
"Tiger Zinda Hai" (2017), directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, has earned approx. 339 crores net in Hindi. "Pathaan" has crossed that mark in just 9 days, and it will cross the 350 crores mark by the end of the day. As far as the gross collection is concerned, "TZH" is still ahead with approx. 433 crores as "Pathaan" will be around 420 crores gross in 9 days.
Siddharth Anand's "War" (2019), starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff is the third biggest-grosser movie in the spy universe with approx. 303 crores net while Salman's "Ek Tha Tiger" (2012) scored approx. 199 crores. At the worldwide box office, "Pathaan" is miles ahead rest of the aforementioned films as the collection will be close to 700 crore gross in 9 days. "TZH" is the second biggest with 558 crores gross while "War" grossed 471 crores and "ETT" minted 320 crores gross worldwide.
"Pathaan" is very much on track to become the first film in YRF's ambitious universe to gross 1000 crores worldwide or reach close to that mark.
