Records are meant to be broken and I am happy it was none other than @iamsrk who did it!” Taran Adarsh called Shobu’s tweet ‘a magnanimous gesture’ on Twitter.
Responding to Shobu’s tweet, the official Twitter handle of Yash Raj Films wrote, “Nothing more thrilling than seeing how Indian cinema is thriving!!… Thank you @Shobu_ for giving us a landmark film like @BaahubaliMovie directed by the visionary @ssrajamouli – it has inspired us to work harder. @iamsrk @deepikapadukone @TheJohnAbraham #SiddharthAnand.”

She captioned it, “Record breaking streak…” As per the poster, Pathaan has collected ₹1026 crore gross at the worldwide box office. While it has collected ₹640 crore gross ( ₹528 crore nett) at the domestic box office, it has earned ₹386 crore gross at the overseas box office.
Pathaan marked Shah Rukh’s return to the silver screen after four years. It also starred Deepika Padukone, John Abraham alongwith Ashutosh Rana and Dimple Kapadia. Salman Khan also had a cameo in the film as Tiger from his Ek Tha Tiger franchise.
