Breaking: Pathaan Demolishes All Records In Nepal, Becomes The Highest-Grossing Bollywood Film Of All Time By Big Margin

Shah Rukh Khan was going through a rough patch professionally with films like Zero and Jab Harry Met Sejal not performing well on all fronts. But after a nearly five-year absence, Shah Rukh returned to the big screen this year with the action thriller Pathaan. People absolutely loved his action avatar and the film became a major commercial success, grossing more than 1,050 crores gross at the global box office.

Even though it has been more than six months since its original theatrical release, the Sidharth Anand directorial continues to reach milestones in different Asian countries. The most recent one is India’s neighboring country Nepal where Pathaan has surpassed the lifetime collection of Avatar 2. Pathaan has so far sold more than 4 lakh 37 thousand tickets compared to Avatar 2’s 2.68 lakh tickets.

This figure is staggering and impressive as surpassing a mega-budget Hollywood flick in ticket sales is no small feat. Now, Pathaan has become the highest-grossing Bollywood film in Nepal in terms of Nepali rupee. Here is a look at some of the top grossers in that country as another entry also stars Shah Rukh Khan.

Top 6 Highest Grossing Bollywood films In Nepal in Nepali Rupee:

1) Pathaan- 13.28 Cr
2) Sultan- 13 Cr
3) Dangal- 12.2 Cr
4) PK- 11.3 Cr
5) Dhoom3- 9.1 Cr
6) Chennai Express- 8.1 Cr

Pathaan Is Set To Release In Japan

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer will be released in Japan on 1st September. Fans believe that it will join the list of highest-grossing Indian films in Japan which also includes RRR, Baahubali 2, and 3 Idiots. During its theatrical run in India, Pathaan minted a whopping total of Rs. 543.05 crore. The film has so far made around 400 crore overseas and combining the numbers from Nepal and Japan will probably make it the highest number ever for any Hindi film in the overseas market. It is also the first Bollywood film to gross the 1,000 crore mark without having a China release.
