King Khan is back with a bang with Pathaan as the much anticipated Bollywood spy thriller made a record breaking income of Rs 55 crores only from its Hindi version on first day. The Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham, and Deepika Padukone starrer film has broken the day 1 Indian box office income record of KGF 2 and with this it has become very evident that the Bollywood industry has been revived once again.
Pathaan shattered all previous Indian box office records of day 1 income despite getting a non Holiday release but we can definitely say that the advance booking and the hype created due to the controversies related to its song Besharam Rang has helped it a lot to generate this massive number on the opening day.
