Pathaan box office collection week one: fastest film to cross the 300-crore mark in India

Pathaan’s first week box office collection, starring Shah Rukh Khan, earned 21 crores nett, bringing its India total to 315 crores in just seven days. After Baahubali 2’s Hindi version, which took 10 days to enter the 300-crore club, became the fastest Hindi film to cross the 300-crore mark.

After Pathaan earned 21 crore crore nett on its seventh day in India, the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer became the fastest Hindi film to cross 300 crore mark after Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Pathaan’s first week collection at the domestic box office now stands at 315 crore nett. Pathaan, which also stars Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Ashutosh Rana, and Dimple Kapadia, was released on January 25.

Pathaan, which has been making and breaking records since it was released worldwide, entered the 300 crore club in only seven days, beating the record held by Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s Hindi version since 2017, which took 10 days to enter the 300 crore at the domestic box office, tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Wednesday. He added that the Hindi version of KGF: Chapter 2 (2022) reached the 300 crore-mark in 11 days, while Aamir Khan‘s Dangal (2016) took 13 days for the same. Both Sanju (2018) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) took 16 days each to enter the 300 crore club. Meanwhile, Aamir’s PK (2014) and Hrithik Roshan’s War (2019) took 17 days and 19 days, respectively, to achieve the 300 crore-feat.

Moreover, Pathaan’s week one box office collection – 315 crore nett – is 65 crore nett more than KGF: Chapter 2, which held the highest first week total before Pathaan swept past it in five days, as per a Box Office India report. Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan was released a day before Republic Day 2023 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The action film, backed by Yash Raj Films, also has a special appearance by actor Salman Khan.

Pathaan has been breaking records ever since its release. Earlier, the film crossed the 200 crore nett-mark in only four days, making it the fastest Hindi film to enter the 200 crore-club. Even before the release of the film, Pathaan had smashed records with its incredible advance bookings. The advance bookings for Pathaan were opened on January 20.

Due to growing demand, theater owners in many parts of India reportedly decided to have early morning screenings of the film. Earlier, there were also reports that the film’s morning shows had been cancelled as protests emerged outside theaters in Indore on Pathaan’s opening day. Pathaan was released on January 25, after facing boycott calls and protests against the film’s cast and crew in recent weeks.
