From Akshay’s Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan to Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera to Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha to Kangana’s Dhaakad, every big starrer Bollywood movie tanked at the box-office. The consistent underperformance of Bollywood movies made many wonder if it was end of Bollywood. But, then came Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan and left everyone surprised.
Pathaan crosses Rs 1000 crore mark
Pathaan turned cinema halls into stadiums as people went berserk after watching Shah Rukh on a big screen after so many years. From lining up early morning at the theatres to dancing in theatres, audience showered their love on Pathaan in countless different ways. And, that’s the reason why Pathaan became a blockbuster the day it was released.

Was it the movie itself, or emotions over SRK that drove this movie to blockbuster status? Was there more to buying a ticket of #Pathaan than just enjoying an action movie?
