Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback in the form of Pathaan is all set for a huge opening tomorrow. The film has had a one-of-its-kind response to the advance booking. What make its achievement even bigger is that it will be released in a large number of screens. We now have the final tally for the screen count of Pathaan.
The Siddharth Anand directed movie will be releasing in 5200 screens in India. This includes all three languages – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Its overseas count is 2500. Hence, its total screen count in the world is a mammoth 7700 screens. The information was shared exclusively by the veteran trade analyst Taran Adarsh on his official Twitter page.
But that’s not all. As Bollywood Hungama reported earlier in the day, Pathaan is also the first Indian film to release in over 100 countries in the world.
Speaking about this achievement, Nelson D’Souza, Vice President, International Distribution, at Yash Raj Films, said, “This is a very heartening sign, especially post-pandemic, keeping the theatrical business revival in mind. Pathaan will release in 100 + countries. It is the fourth film of YRF’s spy universe and it is amazing to see how our prized franchise is growing from strength to strength with every film. We are very bullish about Pathaan and what it can collect from the overseas territories. It should be able to bring the cheer back in the theatrical distribution business at the start of the year.”
Produced by Aditya Chopra for Yash Raj Films, Pathaan is an action thriller that also stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. The film is all set to release worldwide tomorrow on January 25.
