Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan eyes over Rs. 50 cr earning on opening day
Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan made a roaring comeback into the big screens after a hiatus of four years with filmmaker Siddharth Anand's Pathaan, which was released on Wednesday.
Now with all enthusiasm and record advance ticket bookings, Pathaan, as per several reports, is expected to trade over Rs. 50-crore on the opening day, which was also a working day.
According to a The Indian Express report, industry tracker Sacnilk has estimated that the film will gross Rs. 52.5 crore on day one.
Despite this, Pathaan is fighting a close race with the opening collection record by Hrithik Roshan's War (Rs. 53.3 crore), Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan (Rs. 52 crore) and the Hindi version of Kannada film KGF: Chapter 2 (Rs. 53.9 crore).
Pathaan, which co-stars actors Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in the lead, was screened as early as 6 am on Wednesday reflecting the craze around 57-year-old Shah Rukh Khan, who had taken a break from films following the dull run of his last project Zero in the box office in 2018.
The Yash Raj Films' production, which is a part of the spy universe, is released in around 100 countries.
