Shah Rukh Khan, With Pathaan’s Box Office, Proved Why Bollywood Needs SRK More Than SRK Needs Bollywood!

“Shah Rukh Khan is finished”, “SRK went from being 100 to ‘Zero’ at the Box Office”, and “He won’t be able to make a comeback from here”; these are a few of many reactions the ‘King Khan’ of Bollywood got post delivering back to back duds at the box office back in 2019.

Cut to 3rd March 2023, his comeback film Pathaan roared, breaking every possible record by being the highest-grossing Hindi film in history by surpassing Baahubali 2’s Hindi version. It not only entered the ‘crores clubs’ at the box office but also inaugurated the 500 crore club for Bollywood.

The movie has been running for 50 days now, and despite facing competition from Ranbir Kapoor’s Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, it has retained 800 cinemas in India and 135 cinemas across the international markets. Well, well, well, how the turntables… because in the era of Bollywood giving back-to-back box office duds, Shah Rukh Khan is creating history, breaking all the records.
