Let’s begin with our top story. Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan continues to rewrite history at the box office. The film has finally sailed past Aamir Khan’s Dangal collections. According to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Pathaan is expected to have collected approximately Rs. 22.5 crores on Saturday, 4th February, taking total collections in Hindi to Rs. 387 crores. Its all-India collection stands at Rs 401.4 crore if its collections in Tamil and Telugu languages are taken into account. Moreover, the spy thriller has done wonders overseas and crossed Rs 780 crore mark globally, as shared by YRF’s social media handle. Pathaan has emerged as the biggest Bollywood blockbuster and is now eyeing the collections of KGF 2 and Baahubali 2.


Meanwhile, after Pathaan’s massive box office success, director Siddharth Anand in an interview, explained how sometimes while making a film of this size, logic has to take a backseat for the sake of drama. The director said that commercial cinema has a lot to do with the filmmaker’s conviction. When asked about Pathaan being ‘over-the-top’, he cited the examples of Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Sholay. He said, “We don’t make action films. I have made three and every time I have tried to give the audience a little bit of that experience in the theatres, we get to feel the heightened reality but not disbelief.”
