Shah Rukh Khan's fanfare could give Pathaan a 35-crore opening on Day 1: trade experts
The excitement for Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathaan’ is at its peak and fans are quickly booking tickets, despite the high rates. The actor returns to the big screen after a gap of five years and he is being welcomed in a grand manner.
There is a huge expectation from Pathaan by the trade and exhibition sector of the film industry and the range is between 35 crores to 45 crores on the opening day.
Exhibitor Akshaye Rathi said, "The first day collection of the film is likely to be 35 crores and it is huge considering it is a working Wednesday and I expect it to go beyond 45 crore on January 26.''
"SRK's last release was Zero which bombed at the box office although the film opened at about Rs 20 crores. It failed to impress the audience any further though. So will SRK make a big comeback at the box office? Akshaye Rathi said, "While Shah Rukh Khan hasn't had a release in a while and the last few that happened didn't live up to the expectations of a Shah Rukh Khan film, one thing that can never be disputed is that his stardom has been built over three decades. I'm sure that this year he will have a lot of hysteria around him at the box office with the three movies that are releasing. Starting with Pathaan, then Jawan in the middle of the year and Dunki towards the end of the year. I'm sure that we're going to witness one of the biggest opening weekends this republic day.''adds Akshaye Rathi.
