Shah Rukh Khan is making a sensational comeback to the silver screen with his much-anticipated movie Pathaan, which is all set to hit theatres on 25th January. This highly-anticipated movie stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles and has created a lot of buzzes among trade analysts and movie buffs. The release of Pathaan has marked the return of SRK to Bollywood and is considered to be a big moment of joy and celebration.
Adding to the joy, the movie has reportedly sold more than one lakh tickets in the pre-booking window, creating a wave of excitement. This kind of pre-booking had taken a massive hit due to Covid-19 but Pathaan’s success is indicative of the return of hope and normalcy in the film industry. Trade analysts are already predicting a massive opening for the movie and are giving it a fair chance of breaking the impressive opening records of Thugs Of Hindostan which grossed more than 50 crores at the box office.
The success of a movie on day one depends on a lot of factors and in this case, it is due to a combination of the advance ticket booking collections and the collections on the day it releases. Pathaan is a crucial movie for Shahrukh Khan in more ways than one. After the disastrous performance of Zero in 2018, Shahrukh Khan has been through a rough patch.
He was on a hiatus for a while and the success of Pathaan is essential for SRK as his previous several films failed to make a mark at the box office. That being said, Pathaan has generated a lot of buzz and expectation among industry insiders and fans alike. All eyes are now on the movie’s release and success. The movie is expected to make a mark at the box office and is set to be a defining moment of SRK’s journey in the film industry. We can’t wait to see how the movie fares.
