The Siddharth Anand directed film Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham hit screens a while back. Released across 2,500 screens in the overseas market, the Yash Raj Productions venture opening with a bang. Following a good start, the business of Pathaan, which received positive feedback from both the critics and audiences alike, has been seeing a upward trend.

Like the appreciation Pathaan has received within the domestic market, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer has enjoyed a similar fate overseas as well.
