Pathaan has proved its mettle in the theaters by earning a handsome amount of money. The action-spy thriller film has maintained a stronghold despite the new releases. And not just this, it has even dominated the other releases. After four weeks, it is even strong in the fifth week as well. Let’s discuss Pathaan’s 5th week collection estimates along with its box office journey.
Pathaan’s Total Box Office Collection Reaches Over ₹510 Crores
Who would have thought that SRK’s Pathaan would turn the fortunes of the actor? After a gap of nearly 4 years, Shah Rukh Khan had the entry on the big screen. Clearly, there was a huge pressure on him to deliver a hit, if not a blockbuster film.
And he managed to overcome the pressure and come victorious out of it. The testimony of this is the strong run of Pathaan in the 5th week. In its first four weeks, the film had no competition so it attracted a high number of footballs in the theaters.
But it stood firmly even when new films hit the theatres. And it made it possible for the film to beat the new box office entries easily. Over its first weekend, Pathaan collected over ₹5 crores and its minimal drop on the weekdays took its 5th week collection to over 8 crores.
For instance, the film showed a decline of just 20% on its fifth Monday. And it didn’t witness any major drop on the next day. Pathaan remained strong on its fifth Wednesday and Thursday to take its total earnings over ₹510 crores. Here is the day-wise collection of the film in the fifth week:
- Friday (week 5) – ₹1 crore
- Saturday – ₹1.95 crore
- Sunday – ₹2.45 crore
- Monday – ₹0.80 crore
- Tuesday – ₹0.75 crore
- Wednesday – ₹0.75 crore
- Thursday – ₹0.70 crores (approx.)
- Total (week 5) – 8.4 crores (approx.)
Now, there is no new release this Friday so Pathaan has an extended run to enjoy at the box office. Also, the film will get the advantage of the Holi holiday. Though next Friday will see the entry of “Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar”, it would not hamper the successful box office run for the holdover release.
So, it is fair to expect that Pathaan would remain active in theaters till the end of March month.
Pathaan Gives a Strong Message through its Success
The success of Pathaan has given a stern message to other films. It simply dictates that for a film to be a success, it needs to have a balance of many elements required for success.
The blockbuster film has everything that the audience demands in a film. Other films like Shehzada and Selfiee didn’t manage to include these elements in them and they kissed the dust at the box office.
Still, Pathaan has about one week before the arrival of a new film. Definitely, it is expected to rule the big screen and remain strong till the end of this month.
So, this was all about the 5th week’s collection of Pathaan. The other film Selfiee couldn’t manage to make itself count and it didn’t get the response it desired. For more box office updates, keep reading BOTY.
