The King has arrived and ascended to the throne! After two weeks since its debut, Shah Rukh Khan's comeback project Pathaan is still performing strongly at the box office. The movie had an explosive opening weekend, earning more than Rs 300 crore. It recently broke the Rs 800 crore milestone globally and continues to do well at the box office.
Fans are showing up in significant numbers to see the movie despite the national cinema companies' lower ticket costs. Pathaan is on track to join the Rs 500-crore club at the domestic box office and has already broken the record for highest-grossing Hindi movie ever overall.

The film is more likely to make a lot of money on the weekend, even though the weekday collection seems to be steadily declining.
