Extending its record-breaking run at the ticket window, superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has raised Rs 832 crore gross (£83 million) worldwide in 12 days.
According to Yash Raj Films (YRF), the Siddharth Anand-directed film raised Rs 28.50 crore (£28.8 million) nett in India.
“In 12 days, ‘Pathaan’ has recorded Rs 317.20 crore gross (£31.7 million) in overseas territories while India gross stands at Rs 515 crore (£51.5 million),” the studio said in a press note.
