The Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan that has been making headlines since the release of its first track ‘Besharam Rang’ has been gathering steam. Despite the protests, and the competition from smaller releases, the Siddharth Anand directorial looks set to enjoy a money-spinning opening day. In fact, though the advance booking for the film opened full-fledged today, Pathaan has been seeing an incremental spate of bookings.

As per reports, Pathaan has managed to sell 1,71,500 tickets at major national multiplex chains as of 6 PM today for Day 1 alone. At PVR cinemas Pathaan has sold 75,000 tickets, with INOX seeing sales of 60,500 tickets, while Cinepolis saw sales of 35,500 tickets. Given this massive rate of advance ticket sales, Pathaan looks set to open on a monstrous note.

Currently, all eyes are glued to Pathaan’s box office ascension, and if the current trend is anything to by, then the Shah Rukh Khan starrer will in all likelihood see an opening in the Rs. 40 cr range. As it stands now, trade predicts a bumper opening.
