Key Highlight

Pathaan has concluded its theatrical run in the international circuit, amassing a formidable gross of $48.45 million (Rs. 397 crores). While plans to release the film in non-traditional markets, such as Japan and China, remain in the pipeline, in the traditional markets, this is the final number. The Shah Rukh Khan star vehicle has ushered in a new era of records, surpassing all-time benchmarks for the largest opening and final gross in the history of Bollywood movies in the overseas market. Dangal, with a haul of $31.20 million, had held the title for the highest grosser in traditional markets; Pathaan has eclipsed this benchmark by a whopping 55 per cent.

Pathaan Has Created New Benchmarks For Indian Films Internationally

In the preceding decade, Bollywood produced multiple films that have grossed between $20 to $30 million in overseas markets. However, these films tended to rely heavily on one or two markets, while others performed moderately well. Pathaan, however, has broken the mould by achieving remarkable success across all territories, pushing its box office numbers not just beyond $30 million but even $40 million, coming close to the $50 million milestone.

Pathaan Created All Time Records In Four Main International Markets

Pathaan set new all-time records in all four main markets i.e. North America, Gulf, United Kingdom and Australia. Moreover, even smaller markets witnessed unprecedented box office numbers. A market like Germany which typically grosses $200K for biggest Bollywood hits, went on to gross nearly a million dollars. In France, 10K admissions is a rare feat for Bollywood movies, Pathaan mobilised 28K people to cinemas.
