King of Romance aka Shah Rukh khan’s latest release Pathaan has been garnering appraises from all corners as the film continues to amass positive response. The movie opened on a historic note & has witnessed a jump on its second day at the box office.
On Wednesday, Pathaan opened on a terrific note with 45-50% occupancy in the morning and managed to register a phenomenal opening of 57 crores nett at the domestic box office including all versions. The film raked 55 crores with its Hindi version on day 1 while 2 crores with other versions.
Then on Thursday due to Republic Day holiday, Yash Raj Films’ production Pathaan remained rock-strong and showed excellent growth in multiplexes as well as mass centres. The film minted 70.50 crores nett on day 2 including 68 crores from Hindi and 2.50 crores from other versions.

Before the trailer, YRF released the first song of the ‘Besharam Rang’ which ignited a lot of controversy. The colours of SRK and Deepika’s costumes in the song had many political outfits opposing the release of the film unless the makers made changes to the music video. The makers then released the dance number, and also the theme song of the film ‘Jhoome Jo Pathaan’.
Produced by Yah Raj Films, Pathaan also features Deepika Padukone, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. Pathaan was released on Wednesday, a day before Republic Day 2023, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages.
