Pathaan is already the most profitable film made by Bollywood at the Indian box office, competing only with the Hindi dubs of South blockbusters Baahubali: The Conclusion and KGF: Chapter 2.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan is Shah Rukh Khan's first release since 2018's Zero, not counting last year's Brahmastra in which he had a cameo. On Wednesday, SRK captioned a picture of himself: "The Sun is alone….it Burns….and comes out of the darkness to Shine again. Thank u all for letting the Sun shine on Pathaan."
