Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ Sets Record Advance Booking; Re-Opens 25 Shut Cinemas

The spy-thriller is reportedly set to be released across 5,000 screens in India. It is also the first SRK film to have 6 am shows in the country.

Trade analyst Taran Adrash shared in a statement, “The film is going to take a historic start at the box office with opening day collections of Rs 45 to Rs 50 cr. The box office revival will begin with Pathaan, especially looking at its advance booking, which is very rare. It is a great start to 2023 despite being a working day.”

According to the makers of Pathaan, about 25 cinemas, which were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are reopening for Pathaan given the unprecedented buzz around the film’s release.
