Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is overjoyed after his latest movie Pathaan emerged as one of the biggest hits in the history of Hindi cinema. On average, the movie sold over Rs 100 crore worth of tickets across the world during its 5-day opening weekend. Within five days of its release, the movie comfortably cruised past the Rs 500 crore marks at the worldwide box office, reports Indian express.

Pathaan gave Bollywood the much-needed break as it was bogged down by countless controversies and vicious attacks on social media. 

Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham and Siddharth Anand came together at a press conference in Mumbai on Monday to express their gratitude in light of the phenomenal success of Pathaan.

At the programme, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan remarked that the outpouring of support for his new film ‘Pathaan’ has helped him forget the four years he spent away from the silver screen

Talking about the past four years, Shah Rukh Khan said, “The four years that I had… Covid had good and bad parts. I didn’t work. I was with my children. I saw them grow up. My last film had not worked and people had said my movies now won’t work. So, I thought of an alternate career: cooking Italian.”
