Shah Rukh Khan’s film tops Rs 300 crore and exceeds Sooryavanshi’s lifetime

With Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles, Pathaan set the box office on fire. The action-packed performer has been thrilled with audiences and critics alike, who go gaga over Shah Rukh’s action-packed avatar as Pathaan, John’s formidable screen presence as the antagonist Jim and the twisted character of Deepika as ISI agent Rubina.

The film crossed the Rs 300 crore mark worldwide within three days of its theatrical release, according to business tracking website The website also states that Pathaan’s net collections in India are Rs 166.75 crore as he collected Rs 57 crore, Rs 70.5 crore and Rs 39.25 crore in his first three days respectively.

In just three days, Pathaan surpassed the lifetime earnings of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif star Sooryavanshi, which was Bollywood’s first blockbuster in the post-pandemic era. Director Rohit Shetty grossed Rs 294.91 crore worldwide gross to become the highest grossing Hindi film of 2021.

Just as Sooryavanshi was the fourth film in Rohit Shetty’s detective universe after Singham, Singham Returns and Simmba, Pathaan is the fourth film in the YRF Spy universe after Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai and War. While the former had Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh playing pivotal cameos as Singham and Simmba respectively, the latter had Salman Khan in his Tiger avatar in a cameo.

The next film in the YRF spy universe is Tiger 3, directed by Maneesh Sharma, which is slated for release on Diwali 2023. Shah Rukh will be seen in his Pathaan avatar in the third installment of the Salman Khan-directed Tiger franchise and Katrina Kaif. It was previously scheduled to be released on April 21 on Eid but was postponed to make way for Salman’s other film, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan.
