Shah Rukh Khan has done it. He is now officially on the top of the game, what with his Pathaan emerging as Bollywood's highest grosser ever. What's all the more remarkable is that it has done it without much fuss with the record being scored on a day it got over Rs 20 crores in its kitty. Typically, when it comes to the game of records, there is some kind of a waiting period involved as the collections begin to taper and then it all boils down to Rs 1-2 crore been collected on a daily basis which result in a make or break for the film in question.
Well, not in case of Pathaan which had its 11th day bigger than the 1st day of all Bollywood releases of 2022, barring Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva [Rs 37 crores]. This shows how strongly is the Sidharth Anand directed film running in theatres and there is so much more that would be earned in days and weeks to come. With Rs 23.25 crores been collected on Saturday, the film is on a super strong run which will only get accentuated by a huge Sunday awaiting it. Will it hit the Rs 30 crores mark again? Well, looks quite possible though that would be unprecedented.
As for the record breaking journey then well, with Rs 401.40 crores in its kitty so far, the film is far ahead of Rs 387.38 crores which Dangal had collected in its lifetime back in 2016. It has taken many years for Bollywood to finally go one up in terms of records and one just hopes that whatever score that this Yash Raj Films production gains by the end of its lifetime, that record is also surpassed by another Bollywood biggie in a matter of months itself and not years.
All time mega blockbuster.
