Advance sales for Pathaan have been opening up in phases with over 3500 screens available on the platform so far.”
Continuing further about Pathaan’s advance booking and ticket sales, Ashish Saksena revealed that a surge in demand has led a few cinemas across India to open up early morning shows for the film. He said, “The Hindi language version of the film is expectedly leading the charts on sales, closely followed by Telugu and Tamil. The response across India has been phenomenal with cinephiles choosing a cinematic experience as they opt for varied formats including 2D, IMAX and 4DX across cities.”
As per the platform, South India has been impressive and is showcasing an upward trajectory with Hyderabad, Chennai and Bengaluru contributing almost 30% of the overall advance sales so far. They said in a statement. “As the pace of ticket sales picks up further closer to the movie’s release date, we are confident that Pathaan is set to take the box office by storm.”
