The Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathaan has brought respite to the Bollywood film industry. A lot was expected from the film as it generated tremendous hype. Yet, trade and industry were left surprised when it took an earth-shattering opening. Even after the extended weekend got over, it continued to attract viewers in hordes. In 15 days, it has collected Rs. 452.95 crores and has a chance to cross the Rs. 500 crores mark. Needless to say, it is already the biggest Hindi original grosser of all time.
