Shah Rukh Khan is all set to make a roaring comeback with his highly-anticipated Pathaan. The film is doing wonders in advance booking as it has already crossed War in pre-sales for the opening day and surpassed KGF Chapter 2 (Hindi) in national cinema chains. Now, here’s the latest day 1 advance booking update along with the India collection!
Historic opening day for Bollywood!
Tomorrow isn’t an ordinary day as cinema lovers all across the country will be filled with adrenaline pumping energy. Finally, Shah Rukh is coming back on the big screen in a lead role after 4 years and we can literally sense the excitement in air. Going by trends, the film is poised to take the biggest ever non-holiday opening for a Hindi film by beating Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.
Advance booking for day 1 till now
We’re just a few hours from witnessing the first show of Pathaan. But before that, every box office enthusiast has kept his eyes on the pre-sales, which is hitting new heights every hour. As per the latest trade update (as updated on 10:15 pm), the Shah Rukh Khan starrer has sold a whopping 10.40 lakh tickets all across the country, including the online ticket sale of normal screens and national cinema chains. This is really a crazy number!
Speaking about the collections, Pathaan has accumulated a gigantic total of 30.81 crores gross for day 1 through advance booking. It has left War (26.90 crores) well behind to become the no.1 Bollywood film in day 1 pre-sales.
Response for Pathaan is beyond expectations
Remember, the film isn’t a sequel to any successful predecessor or isn’t a holiday release either. Despite that, the craze is unimaginable. Yes, it’s a part of Spy Universe announced by YRF, but that’s not something which is attracting footfalls. It’s all the buzz of Shah Rukh Khan’s grand return after 4 years!
