Release In Bangladesh: ‘Pathaan’ Breaks Another Barrier
Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback film ‘Pathaan’ has smashed several records and emerged as a major blockbuster since its release on January 25.
The highest-grossing Hindi movie ever in India with collections of Rs 654 crore and the second-most worldwide at Rs 1050 crore (behind Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Dangal’), ‘Pathaan’ is now set to break another barrier.
The thriller from Yash Raj Films’ spy universe, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in key roles, will be the first Hindi movie to be released in Bangladesh since the formation of the nation in 1971.
“Pathaan becomes the first Hindi film to release in Bangladesh post 1971 and we are thankful to the authorities for their decision. We have learnt over the years that Shah Rukh Khan has tremendous fan following in Bangladesh and we feel Pathaan, our latest offering from YRF’s Spy Universe, is the perfect first film of SRK & Hindi cinema to release in the country and represent Indian culture and cinema in its full glory,” said Nelson D’Souza, vice-president of International Distribution.
“Cinema has always been a unifying force between nations, races and cultures. It transcends borders, galvanises people and plays a significant hand in bringing people together. We are incredibly thrilled that ‘Pathaan’, which has done historic business worldwide, will now get a chance to entertain audiences in Bangladesh,” he hoped.
The Siddharth Anand directorial has been well received by the OTT audience as well.
