Pathaan Box Office: As was expected, Pathaan's business saw a boost on Sunday owing to the weekend. Shah Rukh Khan's action film has already broken several records after it was released on January 25. In just 11 days of its release, it has become the highest-grossing Hindi film, leaving behind Aamir Khan's Dangal (2016). All eyes will be on whether it will be able to break the records of Yash starrer KGF: Chapter 2 and Prabhas' Baahubali 2.
Pathaan's Sunday business grows
On Sunday, the business of Pathaan grew in India by a good margin. While the collections on Saturday were in the range of Rs 22 crore, the numbers saw a jump on Sunday and the film recorded a business of Rs 27-28 crore. With this figure, Pathaan's second-weekend collection stood at Rs 62 crore, give or take. It has now crossed the Rs 400 crore mark in India in under two weeks, which is unprecedented. With Rs 411 crore collections, Pathaan is only the first Hindi film to cross this benchmark. The other two Rs 400 crore grossers are KGF: Chapter 2 and Baahubali 2.
