Records are being shattered left right and center as the king has arrived to conquer his throne. As Shah Rukh Khan returns after 4 years with Pathaan, the advance booking is on fire for this YRF film. By Monday night, Pathaan had surpassed the advance bookings of War to emerge the biggest advance booking of all time for a Bollywood film. According to our tracking, the film has sold approximately 8 lakh tickets for the opening day alone in India and is looking to end with an overall sale of 10 lakh for the opening day alone in advance booking.
Of the total 8 lakh tickets, approximately 4.19 lakh have been sold in the three national chains – PVR, Inox and Cinepolis. For those unaware, the three chains had sold approximately 4.10 lakh tickets for the previous record holder War. With one day still to go, Pathaan will become the first ever Bollywood film to sell over 5 lakh tickets in the three national chains as also the first film to sell over 10 lakh tickets across the country. The advance booking all across the country has surpassed War and Tuesday is all going to be about upping its lead to claim the top spot. Pathaan will be looking to create records that stand tall for a long time on the opening front.
Pathaan is looking to take an earth-shattering opening above Rs. 40 crores at the box office in India, thereby becoming the biggest non holiday opener of all time in the Hindi market. The opening can also touch Rs. 50 crore depending on how positive the word of mouth is, as a good word mouth would lead to capacity issues in the evening and late night shows.
Pathaan will also be targeting to collect over Rs. 100 crore in just 2 days, and with this, it would become the fastest film to hit a century at Hindi box office. Pathaan advance bookings are record breaking to say the least and we can say, this is just the beginning as January 25 Se Mausam Aur Bhi Bigadne Wala Hai.
