Helmed by Siddharth Anand, the big-screen spectacle turned out to be one of the historical comebacks in Indian cinema.

In India alone, it earned 543.22 crores nett and globally, it made 1050.40 crores gross.
Now, as per the report in Box Office Worldwide, Pathaan has clocked a start of ₽600K on day 1 at the Russian box office. It has now emerged as the biggest Indian opening ever in Russia (dubbed in the Russian language) by beating the mighty blockbuster, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (₽430K).
Meanwhile, as announced recently, Pathaan is heading to Japan to present a heady cocktail of action and thrill to its audience. The film, which also stars John Abraham and Deepika Padukone, will release in Japanese theatres on September 1, 2023, with a subtitled version.
The film, which is a total service to the fans of SRK and has many moments that pushed the audience to the edge of their seats, is expected to do well in Japan.
