“Pathaan acha kar rahi hai. Aisi films chalni chahiye aur I feel ki jo hamare Hindi cinema wale piche reh gaye hain, har insaan apne level pe koshish kar raha hai (Pathaan is doing very well. I feel films like this should definitely work. Hindi cinema has been lagging behind other film industries, and we are all trying to finally bring back the business in our own little way).” Anupam Kher also said in Hindi, “It (Pathaan) is a huge film, made on a huge budget.”
Days before its release, Pathaan created a buzz among fans, with a number of advance bookings that broke all records. Reportedly, industry experts had backed King Khan -starrer Pathaan to open somewhere between ₹45-50 crore at the box office.
