The mere mention of Yash Raj Films’ magnum opus ‘Pathaan’ is enough to send a ripple of excitement through the cinephile community. From the moment it was announced, the film has been the talk of the town, and after its release, it set the entire industry ablaze. With Aditya Chopra at the helm of production and Siddharth Anand directing, ‘Pathaan’ is an unparalleled masterpiece that has etched its name in the annals of cinematic history as an all-time blockbuster.
Breaking records left, right, and center, ‘Pathaan’ has shattered all previous box office records in the Hindi film industry, with a staggering global gross of over Rs. 1050 crore. It’s a monumental achievement that cements the film’s status as the highest-grossing movie in the history of Hindi cinema. The film boasts an A-list cast that includes the iconic Shah Rukh Khan, the stunning Deepika Padukone, the dashing John Abraham, and the ever-graceful Dimple Kapadia, all of whom deliver memorable performances that leave a lasting impression on viewers’ hearts and minds.
‘Pathaan’ continues to break new ground and create history with each passing moment. The film is all set to achieve yet another milestone as it becomes the first Hindi film to release in Bangladesh post-partition (1971). The movie will release in Bangladeshi theatres on May 12.
‘Pathaan’ has already made a massive impact in the Indian film industry, becoming a game-changer that has breathed new life into a stagnating box office. At a time when commercial hits were few and far between, ‘Pathaan’ arrived on the scene like a refreshing breeze.
With sheer delight over the film’s much-awaited release in Bangladesh, Nelson D’Souza of YRF expressed, “Cinema has always been a unifying force between nations, races and cultures. It transcends borders, galvanises people and plays a significant hand in bringing people together. We are incredibly thrilled that Pathaan, which has done historic business worldwide, will now get a chance to entertain audiences in Bangladesh!”
Furthermore, he proudly announced that “Pathaan becomes the first Hindi film to release in Bangladesh post-1971 and we are thankful to the authorities for their decision. We have learnt over the years that Shah Rukh Khan has a tremendous fan following in Bangladesh and we feel Pathaan, our latest offering from YRF’s Spy Universe, is the perfect first film of SRK and Hindi cinema to release in the country and represent Indian culture and cinema in its full glory.”
YRF has given an enthralling Spy Universe that encompasses Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger’ franchise, Hrithik Roshan’s ‘War’, and the latest addition to the league, Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’. Yet, this is just the tip of the iceberg, as the Spy Universe is expanding with an array of upcoming movies like ‘Tiger 3’, ‘War 2’, and the highly anticipated ‘Tiger vs Pathaan’.
The excitement doesn’t stop there, as recent reports suggest that YRF is gearing up to create a trailblazing spy film, with a women-centric narrative. The movie is set to star the talented Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone.
