Since its debut, Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, has been setting box office records left and right. During its first week of release, the film grossed over 400 crores. The actor’s massive fan base drove big crowds to the theatres to see his return performance. Take the case of the disabled guy who rode on his friend’s back to the theatre to see the cinematic wizardry of King Khan.
The disabled guy rode from Bhagalpur, Bihar, to Samsi Pawan Talkies in Malda, West Bengal, to see Pathaan. Halim Hoque tweeted the short clip of around 35 seconds. Outside the theatre, the guy is seen carrying his comrade on his back. The guys discuss their journey to the theatre and their status as Shah Rukh Khan devotees.
This video has been tweeted about a lot recently. The video has over 98.6K views, 170 retweets, and 550 likes on Twitter. Many online users expressed their appreciation for their relationship, with some even becoming tearful over it. These guys have established the standard by which all friendships should be measured.
Pathaan is Shah Rukh Khan’s latest example of why he is rightfully called Bollywood’s Badshah. Over the course of its five-day run, Pathaan has earned Rs 280 crore in India and almost Rs 540 crore elsewhere across the globe at the box office. Since his new records are likely to stand for quite some time, Shah Rukh Khan should be universally referred to from this point forward as Baad-Shah Rukh Khan. This is because his new records have been set across the board, from the highest opening to the highest opening weekend and the highest single-day collection.
Pathaan has smashed through all kinds of box office records, both in India and throughout the world. It took the Siddharth Anand-helmed picture the least amount of time to break into the Rs 100 crore, Rs 200 crore, Rs 300 crore, Rs 400 crore, and Rs 500 crore clubs at the worldwide box office. The film also starred Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. Pathaan has completely destroyed the box office worldwide, and by the time it finishes its run, it will own every single record for an original Hindi film’s box office earnings, from opening day to lifetime.
