Pathaan broke all box office records on its second day by an unheard-of margin, with trends pointing to a second-day total close to Rs 70 crore. With unprecedented demand for additional screenings in tier 2 and tier 3 theatres, the Shah Rukh Khan-starring actioner was playing to sold-out audiences everywhere.
Even though it opened on more than 5500 screens and had over 20,000 shows per day, the Siddharth Anand-directed film only had a 65 percent occupancy rate on its second day. Pathaan has exceeded all expectations on its second day, whether it be in single screens or multiplexes, where it has seen unfathomable occupancy. The Hindi version is anticipated to bring in between Rs. 69 and Rs. 71 crore, and the Tamil and Telugu dub versions are anticipated to add another Rs. 2 to Rs. 3 crore to the sum.

Pathaan dominates the Indian box office
Aside from the single screens, relatively smaller multiplex chains like Rajhans and MovieMax have experienced real growth while the national chains were already operating at full capacity on opening day.
While Rajhans experienced a record-breaking growth of 150 percent over its first day, MovieMax experienced growth of 45 percent. These increases have occurred despite the movie having a great day of attendance. In both chains, it is a single-day record that will endure for a very long time. Even Miraj demonstrated a remarkable increase of 40% on its second day, setting an all-time record for a single day in the chain.
Some single screens also functioned at their peak on the second day. Ashok Cinema (Pune) made Rs 91,000 on Wednesday and then increased its revenue by over 100% on Thursday to make Rs 1.92 Lakh. In Chandrapur, the Radhakrishna Cinema saw a 3x increase, from Rs. 76,000 on Wednesday to Rs. 3.25 lakh on Thursday.
The situation is the same at single screens across the country because Pathaan breathed life into a number of deserted movie theatres in the interior of India. It was a sight for sore eyes to see other movie theatres in Mumbai, like Fun Square in Sanpada and Nishant Cinema in Grant Road, put up a houseful board because they have been operating to empty houses for years. From Rs. 1.99 lakh to Rs. 2.65 lakh, UMA increased in Solapur.
Pathaan records the largest ever single-day collection
The biggest single day ever for a Hindi movie and a movie in the Hindi market were both achieved by Pathaan. By a margin of 27%, the movie broke every previous record, and Pathaan’s second day box office is a record that will stand the test of time. The two-day Pathaan (All India) box office total is currently at around Rs 128 crore, and the movie is quickly approaching a record-breaking opening weekend in the neighbourhood of Rs 150 crore.
In terms of records like biggest opening day, biggest single day, biggest second day, and biggest opening weekend, the movie is already the best film in Bollywood, and it will break many more records in the days to come. In fact, there is a good chance that by the end of its run, SHAH RUKH KHAN will hold the title of having earned the most money at the box office overall. Pathaan’s second day box office performance is unprecedented, exceeding all film industry predictions and theories.
