After a record-breaking opening of Rs. 57 crore across the nation, Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan, has shattered another record on its second day. According to early estimates, the movie is looking to collect in the range of Rs. 67 to 69 crores [all versions] on the Republic Day, taking the two-day total to Rs. 125 crore plus. Of this, the total two-day contribution from the South dubbed version is around Rs. 4.50 to Rs. 5 crores.
Pathan is on a riot all across the board - be it the single screens or the multiplexes - facing capacity issues too at multiple territories. Gujarat, which was relatively low on the first day, has shown big gains on the second day. The same is the case with CP and CI, which have jumped by huge margins.
Pathan will surely enter the Rs. 200 crore club within its opening weekend and even score a triple century by the end of extended week one. It's now all going to be about how far it goes from thereon. There is already a chatter of it becoming the highest-grossing Hindi Film of all time by going past the lifetime collections of Dangal and also becoming the first Bollywood film to enter the Rs. 400 crore club.
Shah Rukh Khan has arrived with a bang with Pathaan and has created records that will stand tall for a long time. At present, it holds the following records in India - biggest opener of all time, biggest single day total of all time, biggest non-holiday opener of all time, and biggest second day of all time. By the end of its extended weekend, many more records shall be under Pathaan's kitty.
