The records continue to accumulate for Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan’s new release and a smash hit at the box office. Ticket sales in India total ₹ 296.50 crore in six days, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Pathaan passes the Monday test with a respectable ₹ 25.50 crore and heads towards a new record on Day 7, which is today. This means that once Day 7’s collections are reported tomorrow, Pathaan will have crossed the ₹ 300 crore benchmark faster than the Hindi dubs of Baahubali: The Conclusion and KGF: Chapter 2, the previous record holders in the Hindi film industry. Pathaan will have made ₹ 300 crore at the domestic box office in a week, quicker than Baahubali: The Conclusion’s 10 days and KGF: Chapter 2’s 11 (the Hindi dubs of these films).
“Pathaan stands tall on the crucial Monday (Day 6). National chains super-strong, mass circuits rocking. Will be SRK’s first film to hit ₹ 300 crore on Tuesday (Day 7). Wednesday 55 crore, Thursday 68 crore, Friday 38 crore, Saturday 51.50 crore, Sunday 58.50 crore, Monday 25.50 crore. Total: ₹ 296.50 crore. India biz,” tweeted Taran Adarsh.
The Tamil and Telugu dubs of Pathaan have so far brought in ₹ 10.75 crore, adding ₹ 1 crore on Monday to the previous five days’ earnings.
The film will become the “fastest to enter ₹ 300 club,” Taran Adarsh tweeted with a list of the previous quickest triple centuries. Pathaan, Baahubali: The Conclusion and KGF: Chapter 2 are followed by Dangal, Sanju, Tiger Zinda Hai, PK, War, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan.
Pathaan has already broken several records – it is Bollywood’s biggest opener and fetched the fastest ₹ 200 and ₹ 250 crore. It is also the only Hindi film to earn close to ₹ 70 crore in a single day.
Pathaan stars Shah Rukh Khan in the title role of a RAW agent who teams up with Deepika Padukone’s character on an anti-terror mission against rogue agent Jim, played by John Abraham. Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan released on January 25.
