BREAKING: Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan hits a CENTURY at PVR chain of cinemas; crosses 100 cr. mark
The Siddharth Anand directorial Pathaan, which released a while back, has proved to be unstoppable at the box office. After opening to a thunderous response from the audience, the Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham starrer has been seeing a steady increase in business with each passing day. In fact, Pathaan, which enjoyed a five day, extended opening weekend, has fast emerged as one of the highest grossing Bollywood releases of recent time. Now in its second week running, the makers of Pathaan have lowered ticket prices for the film across national multiplex chains.
The decrease in ticket prices coupled with the lack of competition in cinemas and of course, the hype surrounding the film Pathaan has seen its business remain more of less stable. In fact, looking at the PVR chain of cinemas alone, Pathaan has managed to cross the Rs. 100 cr. NETT mark and has collected Rs. 100.35 cr. as of yesterday. Not surprisingly, following PVR are other national multiplex chains like INOX and Cinepolis that saw the film register Rs. 79.07 cr. and Rs. 43.91 cr. respectively.
As of now, Pathaan continues to run in theatres with the audience patronizing the film in droves. In fact, with lowered ticket rates, trade predictions state that Pathaan is likely to see a steady rate of footfalls over the ensuing weekdays as well. Given this scenario, the overall business of the film is sure to see an increase.
