Bollywood’s “Badshah” Shah Rukh Khan has done it again! The King of Bollywood is back in the game with his latest flick, “Pathaan,” which has taken the entertainment world by storm. This high-octane action-thriller has now become the fifth Indian film to cross the Rs 10 billion mark worldwide.
Directed by Siddharth Anand and starring the gorgeous Deepika Padukone and the talented John Abraham alongside SRK, Pathaan has kept the audiences on the edge of their seats since its release on January 25th. The movie’s success has been so remarkable that it has remained unaffected by other releases, even after its fourth week in theatres.
But the most astounding fact is that Pathaan has achieved this tremendous feat without being released in China, which is known for its huge fan following of Bollywood movies. In the past, films like Dangal have garnered massive success in the Chinese market, but Pathaan’s success proves that the movie’s popularity has transcended borders.
Despite being in the top five, Pathaan has a long way to go to reach the top of the charts. Aamir Khan’s Dangal, which had a massive following in China, tops the list with a whopping Rs19.6803 billion worldwide. The second and third positions are held by Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Rs17.47 billion) and KGF 2 (Rs 11.88 billion), respectively, while RRR takes the fourth position with Rs11.74 billion.
It seems like Shah Rukh Khan was eagerly waiting for Pathaan to join the elite Rs10 billion club. During one of his ‘Ask SRK’ sessions on Twitter, he replied to a fan asking for his lucky number. “Right now, any number above 1000 ha ha ha #Pathaan,” SRK wrote.
Pathaan’s success is a testament to the charm and talent of Shah Rukh Khan, who has been entertaining us for over three decades now. It also highlights the power of Indian cinema, which has the ability to captivate audiences worldwide. With Pathaan’s success, the future of Indian cinema seems brighter than ever!
