SRK’s Pathaan is in no mood to slow down at the box office. It is evident from its performance in the third week so far. Though no competition was there for the movie, its collection says a lot about its quality. Pathaan 3rd week collection is expected to stand at around ₹45 crores.

Indeed, it is an impressive number for any film in the third week. And it is heading towards the 500 crores club rapidly. Whether it would be able to achieve that or not will completely depend on how it performs on the fourth Friday.

Third Week Collection Reaches Near ₹45 Crores

Who would have expected that Shah Rukh Khan would make a blasting comeback on the big screen? Well, everyone wanted it to happen but no one had imagined that the Bollywood king would roar in this way.

Pathaan left the audience stunned with its first two weeks’ collection. And it didn’t stop its good performance in its third week either. Right from the beginning of this week, it showed good growth every single day.

A good collection over the third weekend was sufficient to tell its tale for the third week. Additionally, the jump it received on Valentine’s Day also helped it to gain momentum at the box office.

After a decent drop of below 30% on the third Monday, the film attracted more footfalls on its third Tuesday. A jump of 32% on Valentine’s day helped the film earn ₹5.40 crores.

The five-day numbers have come and they depict a successful third-week run for the film. For the remaining two days, Pathaan is expected to see a graceful drop and its total collection would cross the mark of ₹485 crores after week 3

New Releases Would Present a Stiff Competition in the Fourth Week

Pathaan would see stiff competition from Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada which would hit the theatres this Friday. Also, the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would also steal screens from the Bollywood film.

I must inform you here that the Hollywood film’s advance booking is going at a good pace. Over 50,000 tickets have been sold on the Day 1 of booking opening.

Clearly, Pathaan would have to display a splendid performance to continue its winning run in the 4th week. Even if the film gets a decent number of screens, that would suffice well and it would take its total to a good value.

From Pathaan’s 3rd week run, it seems the film is unstoppable and it would set many new records in the Hindi film industry. In the first five days of the third week, it has already earned over ₹38 crores.

It hints at the intensity of likings the moviegoers are showing for the film. How early would it be able to achieve the mark of ₹500 crores? Well, it is directly linked to its performance over the fourth weekend.

Whatever the case may be, I will update you on the film’s journey at the box office. Also, I will notify you about the exact earning of Pathaan in its third week. So, don’t forget to come back to get insights about Pathaan’s performance on the big screen.
