New Delhi, Jan 27 (PTI): Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s “Pathaan” continued to rake in big numbers at the global box office as the film’s worldwide collection on day two reached ` 219.6 crore, the makers announced on Thursday.
According to production house Yash Raj Films (YRF), the SRK-Deepika Padukone starrer raised ` 113.6 crore in worldwide gross on day two of its release. The film’s opening day figure was ` 106 crore.
In the domestic market, the film’s nett day two collection stood at ` 70.5 crore (` 82.94 crore gross). The film’s Hindi version amassed ` 68 crore in net earnings, with its dubbed formats bringing in additional ` 2.5 crore. “Pathaan” was also released in Tamil and Telugu on Wednesday.
With its day two haul, the movie created another record — first Hindi film to breach the ` 70 crore nett collection on a single day.
Internationally, the film earned ` 30.70 crore gross.
The Siddharth Anand directorial, which faced boycott calls over the song “Besharam Rang”, marks Shah Rukh’s return to movies after a gap of over four years. His previous film was 2018’s “Zero”.
“As an industry, we are rejoicing today. This is the most important sentiment emerging out of Pathaan’s success. All of us at Yash Raj Films are grateful for the incredibly humbling support from media, audiences and the industry towards ‘Pathaan’.
“It is this unanimous love for the film that has resulted in Pathaan shattering all existing records and creating new ones. We are happy that the film has entertained everyone in such an immersive manner,” Akshaye Widhani, CEO of Yash Raj Films, said in a statement.
With its record haul in the first two days of its release, “Pathaan” has exceeded the expectations of the industry experts who were banking on the action spectacle to bring some cheer in the industry after a series of box office duds.
“Pathaan” is the fourth film in producer Aditya Chopra’s ambitious spy universe, following Salman Khan’s “Ek Tha Tiger” (2012) and “Tiger Zinda Hai” (2017), and “War”, featuring Hrithik Roshan (2019).
The movie follows the titular spy Pathaan (Shah Rukh) who comes out of exile to stop terrorist group Outfit X, led by Jim (John Abraham), from launching a debilitating attack on India.
“Pathaan”, which according to YRF has broken some 21 box office records, also has a guest appearance by Salman as fellow spy Tiger.
