Defying the boycott trend, Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘Pathan’ has made a tremendous opening. Pathan has also broken the record of the film KGF 2 in terms of advance booking. Due to Thursday being a national holiday, there has been tremendous advance booking and this film is making new records in this matter. Seeing this success of Pathan, it seems that Bollywood’s crisis is averted. According to Box Office India.com, in the case of advance booking of the film Pathan, the advance barrier of 50 crores was broken for the first time. Advance booking of 26 crores was done before the start of the show, this is also a record.
Last year, Bollywood films were in a bad condition. In such a situation, Pathan has brought new hope for Bollywood. Where even advance booking of 10 crores was not possible, Shahrukh Khan’s film has broken the old records by crossing the advance booking figure of 50 crores. The same old formula is working in Shahrukh’s film as well, people are going to theaters only to see Shahrukh in action, who is making a comeback after almost four years.
