Describing it to be a "landmark moment," the actor told Bollywood Hungama: "This is a landmark moment not just for the film and the entire team of Pathaan but also for the Hindi film industry. I'm thrilled that we have entertained Indians and Hindi cinema lovers globally with Pathaan.”
Director Siddharth Anand, meanwhile, told ANI how grateful he is to witness the love for his film. He was quoted as saying: "I'm just so happy and grateful that Pathaan has been entertaining people globally. To hit 1000 plus crore gross worldwide and 500 crore nett in Hindi version is simply historic, and we are thankful for the love that people have showered on Pathaan. As a director, I couldn't be prouder to have made a film that is bringing joy to so many people globally.
