The official figures are in and SRK has arrived in a grand way at the box office. ‘Pathaan’ has earned around Rs 54 crore nett on day 1, with an additional Rs 1.50 crore coming in from the dubbed versions. With these figures, ‘Pathaan’ has managed to beat the opening day collection of Hrithik Roshan’s ‘War’ (Rs 50 crore) and Yash’s ‘KGF: 2’ Hindi (Rs 52 crore). The film has earned huge figures from the Mumbai and Pune markets, but ‘Pathaan’ has underperformed in Gujarat / Saurashtra. This action entertainer has managed to achieve this feat on a non-holiday opening. In South India, the Hindi film has earned decent in the Nizam / Andhra circuit and UP-Bihar markets have also earned phenomenal collections.
