Pathaan Set to Cross Dangal in Box Office Numbers


Shah Rukh Khan’s latest action thriller is shattering box office records like a pack of cards everyday! Today could be the day as Pathaan is all set to go past the lifetime record of as many as three 300 Crore Club blockbusters. On just its eighth day, Pathaan has surged past Tiger Zinda Hai, PK and Sanju. These are as big the films as they get and had emerged as all time blockbuster after being in cinemas for many weeks at a stretch. However there has been no such stress for Pathaan as it has taken just eight days to make this happen and there is so much more that it’s set to gain in weeks to come.


Two of the three 300 crore films are directed by Rajkumar Hirani while one belongs to YRF’s own spy universe. The one on the top has seemed unassailable for quite some time but it’s just a matter of three more days and Pathaan will cross that as well by being the highest Bollywood grosser ever.

Lifetime Total of Top 5 Bollywood Biggies:

  1. Dangal – 387.38 crores
  2. Pathaan – 348.50 crores
  3. Sanju – 342.53 crores
  4. PK – 340.80 crores
  5. Tiger Zinda Hai – 339.25 crores

While we wait to see how big does Pathaan go before the close of its run (which by the way is really far away for now), what would make 2023 really interesting is the fact that Tiger 3 is releasing this year itself, which would make it two spy thrillers arriving in the same year. Moreover, Shah Rukh Khan would be seen in a cameo in the film with Salman Khan and rest assured, this film too would be aiming to enter the coveted 500 Crore Club.
