Public response

“Pathaan” stars Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role. The action-packed film follows a Raw officer who must confront his past and protect his loved ones. With over $50 million budget, “Pathaan” was one of the most expensive Indian films ever made. But it has more than recouped its costs, grossing over $800 million worldwide to become the highest-grossing Indian film ever.

The previous record holder was “Baahubali 2”, which grossed around $700 million worldwide in 2017. The epic fantasy film, directed by S. S. Rajamouli, was a cultural phenomenon in India and beyond.
