On Saturday, producer Shobu Yarlagadda congratulated Shahrukh Khan and the Pathaan team for breaking his Baahubali 2 record and becoming the highest grossing Hindi movie. The return film of SRK, Pathaan, broke several records at the box office, notably the biggest grossing Hindi film.
With Rs 511 crores from India, Pathaan has surpassed the previous record holder title Baahubali 2. SS Rajamouli’s 2017 directorial earned Rs 510.99 crores in its lifetime from India. The film maintained the record for five years in a row until Pathaan broke it. Shobu shared a tweet from Taran Adarsh about Pathaan’s ranking in the Hindi Grosser and beating Baahubali 2, KGF 2 and Dangal’s collections.
Shobhu’s tweet was much welcomed by Shahrukh Khan fans and other netizens across South India, as they loved his sportiness. They hailed him by saying hats off and other elevating words and criticized some Bollywood Industry people who can not accept the success of Pathaan.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan marked the return of Shah Rukh Khan into films after over four years of grand style. There was immense hype for the film before the release, and it broke several records right from day 1, including the highest opening-day, weekend, and week as well as achieving several milestones which no one would have imagined.
Pathaan is a part of the YRF Spy Universe, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in key roles, apart from a terrific and a crowd pleasing cameo by Salman Khan.
