SRK’s action thriller movie, Pathaan, continues to excel at the box office. After two weeks of spectacular performance, the movie is set to break new records in the Hindi film industry.

In its third weekend, the film showed its winning run and it attracted a good number of footfalls in its theatres. That’s why Pathaan 3rd Sunday box office collection stood at a good value.

Though there was no big competition for SRK’s film, still, performing well after two weeks is a big feat for any film.

3rd Sunday Collection Pushes the Third Weekend Total to a Great Value

Till the second week, Pathaan collected over ₹400 crores. And it became the first Hindi film to do so. However, the film didn’t show any sign of slowing down over the third weekend.

Clearly, the film’s positive word of mouth, and presence of big stars, and no major completion are the major contributing factors to its success.

Not just has it turned out to be a strong comeback for Shah Rukh Khan after 4 years but Bollywood has also felt a sigh of relief amid Boycott campaigns.

Pathaan 3rd Sunday collection stood at ₹12.80 crores (approx.). And it is a very good value for a film on its 19th day at the box office. As a result, its third weekend total surpassed ₹29 crores.

Film Races Towards the ₹500 Crores Club

Now, after the immense success of the film, everyone is eager to know whether it would earn over ₹500 or not. As of now, Pathaan’s total collection has crossed the value of ₹465 crores.

Evidently, it is something that every film wants to earn during its box office run. Now, movie fans and critics are curious to see the film in the ₹500 crores club.

If it does so, it will be the first Hindi film to enter the bracket of films earning over ₹500 crores. And it is heading toward breaking the record of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Will it be able to do so?

Well, that’s the biggest question that everyone is asking right now. Let’s analyze the current scenario at the box office in detail.

Pathaan to Face Competition Due to the New Releases

The next Friday, there will be new releases that would offer stern competition to Pathaan. The names of the Friday releases are Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada and Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

After that, there will be many new releases that would try to attract moviegoers to their theaters. Upcoming films like Akshay Kumar’s Selfiee, Ajay Devgn’s Bholaa and Ranbir Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor’s Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar are already creating

Clearly, tough competition is on the line for Pathaan. And it will be interesting to see how it would survive amid the inflow of new releases on the coming Fridays.

If Pathaan wants to touch the mark of ₹500 crores, it will have to sail strongly over the weekdays. Surely, there will be a lesser number of screens available for the film so a dip in its collection is expected over the fifth weekend.

On Valentine’s day, Pathaan will see an inflow of visitors due to it being a festive day. But after that, its run would decrease steadily. Whether it would become the first 500 crores earner in Bollywood would completely depend on its performance over the next few weekdays.
