Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan is all set to make his comeback as the lead role with Pathan, which is scheduled to release on 25 January 2023. The film directed by Siddharth Anand also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles. All eyes are on Pathan as Bollywood is going through a rough phase.
But before the release of Pathan, let’s take a look at the box office analysis of Shah Rukh Khan’s last release ‘Zero’. The film was directed by Aanand L. Rai and also starred Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
Zero opened well and collected Rs 500. 19.35 crores on the first day, but later it started declining. The film collected Rs 500 crore in its first weekend. 54.60 crore, and saw a further decline on weekdays. In India, the film’s lifetime collection stood at Rs. 90.28 crore nett, and the film’s worldwide gross collection was Rs. 186 crores.
OK, Rs. The collection of 90.28 crores is surely going to be pretty good for a mid budget film. But Zero was made on a much larger scale and according to reports, the film was made on a budget of Rs 500 crore. 200 crores. Even if we just ignore the Indian collection and look at the Worldwide gross collection of Zero, Rs. 186 crores, it is still less than the film’s budget. So zero flopped.
While the official budget of Pathan is yet to be revealed, reports suggest that the film was made on a whopping budget of Rs. 250 crores. Let’s see what response Pathan gets at the box office.
