The Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan is fast gathering momentum. In fact, the film which faced immense opposition after the release of its first track ‘Besharam Rang’ and even found itself in the eye of the storm with boycott calls, seems to have weathered the storm. Also starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, the Siddharth Anand directorial looks set to enjoy a money-spinning run at the box office.

After early reports from Hyderabad painted a positive picture, further reports claim that the film is well on its way to box office victory. As per reports, Pathaan has sold 75,500 tickets till 6.30 PM today (Thursday), across major national multiplex chains alone. The PVR chain of cinemas saw sales of 33,000 tickets across India; the second highest is INOX, which saw 22,500 tickets, while Cinepolis saw sales of 20,000 tickets.

Interestingly, though the full-fledged advance sale of Pathaan tickets begins tomorrow, January 20, the tickets sold so far have provided an indicator of what to expect. Going by the current trend of advance sales, Pathaan which is slated to release on January 25 is likely to see a bumper opening. Currently, trade predictions estimate an opening day collection of Rs. 40 cr approximately.
