Pathaan approximate Box Office Collection Day 1: Shah Rukh Khan welcomes audiences with open arms; Read results!

The domestic box office for Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan is off to a fantastic start. Pathaan's opening day numbers rank among the best of all time, surpassing those of War (2019), which made ₹50 crore net and KGF 2 (Hindi), which made ₹52 crore net. Early estimates indicate that Pathaan's Hindi adaptation made an incredible ₹50–₹51 crore net on its opening day at the domestic box office.

In Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, Pathaan was released on Wednesday, the day before Republic Day 2023. Siddharth Anand is the film's director, while Yash Raj Films is the production company.


"Pathaan has scored a remarkable opening day at the box office as it takes a ₹50-51 crore nett collection in its Hindi language," says a Box Office India report. According to the article, Bahubali: The Conclusion (in Hindi), which was the greatest non-holiday opener before Pathaan, the action movie, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, has shattered non-holiday records by a wide margin. SS Rajamouli is the film's director. It takes place in 2017.


Trade expert Taran Adarsh shared Pathaan's anticipated first-day collections at national chains on Twitter on Wednesday. He claims that the movie made more money up to Wednesday night (₹25.05 crore) than Hrithik Roshan's War (₹19.67 crore) did on its first weekend at cinema networks. He tweeted: “Pathaan at national chains… day 1… update: 8.15 pm. PVR: ₹11.40 crore, INOX: ₹8.75 crore, Cinepolis ₹4.90 crore. Total: ₹25.05 crore. SUPERB. Note: Better than War [ ₹19.67 crore], TOH, Thugs of Hindostan [ ₹18 crore] and KGF [ ₹22.15 crore] – (their) entire day numbers at multiplex chains."

Adarsh had told PTI that Pathaan will revitalise Bollywood and usher in a wonderful 2023 for the motion picture industry. Prior to Pathaan's release, he had stated, “The film is going to take a historic start at the box office with opening day collections of ₹45-50 crore. 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.”


Industry observer Ramesh Bala tweeted on Thursday about the movie's first day's global box office earnings. He stated: "Pathaan takes a whopping ₹100 crore plus gross opening at the worldwide box office. No.1 debut in UAE and Singapore." In another tweet, he said, "Pathaan has crossed $1 million in the US by Wednesday afternoon."


With its amazing advance bookings, the movie Pathaan broke records even before it was released. On January 20, advance reservations for Pathaan were available. Many theatre owners in India decided to screen the movie early in the morning due to rising demand. In the midst of the Pathaan frenzy, there were also rumours that the morning showings of the movie had been cancelled as demonstrators began to gather Wednesday outside theatres in Indore.
