Shah Rukh Khan Starrer Registers Biggest Weekend Of All Times For A Hindi Release
It’s a record weekend for Pathaan. With unexplainable collections coming right from Wednesday to Friday, the film is breaking one record after another. While its overall collections stand at 166.75 crores, In fact in just the Hindi version, the film has amassed a huge 161 crores. Now this is more than what any Indian film has ever scored in just a single language during the first three days.
This can well be seen from the fact that even the dubbed versions of south releases KGF – Chapter 2 and Baahubali – The Conclusion have been left behind. While former had collected KGF – 143.64 crores in Hindi, latter had amassed 128 crores. Of course the collections were bigger if one adds collections from the native Kannada and Telugu versions as well, along with other south languages. However, since the data from the south is hardly made official and most of the times it’s estimates/speculations/assumptions, an accurate number is never available.
When compared to the core Bollywood releases though, Pathaan is leading the show by a huge distance with Brahmastra’s collections of 122 crores been way behind. In fact these were crossed by the Shah Rukh Khan starrer in just two days, which pretty much tells the tale. This is how the first three day collections of the biggest Hindi releases look like:
Pathaan – 161 crores
KGF – Chapter 2 [Hindi] – 143.64 crores
Baahubali – The Conclusion [Hindi] – 128 crores
Brahmastra – 122 crores
Sanju – 120.06 crores
Tiger Zinda Hai – 114.93 crores
Happy New Year – 108.86 crores
Dhoom: 3 – 107.61 crores
Dangal – 107.01 crores
Race 3 – 106.47 crores
On a separate note, the film has also left behind Hollywood releases in a big way. Two of the biggest blockbusters from the West are Avengers: End Game and Avatar: The Way of Water which had collected 157.20 crores and 127 crores respectively. While bulk of these collections came from the native English versions, there were contributions from Hindi and other south languages as well.
