Pathaan is on the verge of making history, as it will be crossing the Rs. 1000 crore mark worldwide today. As of yesterday, the film has raked in a whopping Rs. 615 crores in India and Rs. 383 crores overseas, totalling a staggering Rs. 998 crores in global box office earnings. The Shah Rukh Khan starrer is expected to earn the remaining Rs. 2 crores and more today, to become only the fifth-ever Indian and second-ever Bollywood film to enter the coveted club. Prior to Pathaan, in order of reaching the mark, Baahubali: The Conclusion, Dangal, RRR and KGF Chapter 2 were the other four to go over Rs. 1000 crores worldwide. Notably, for Bollywood, Pathaan will be the first to achieve this milestone without a release in China. The highest-grossing Indian films worldwide are as follows: Dangal – Rs. 1914 crores Baahubali 2: The Conclusion – Rs. 1747 crores KGF Chapter 2 – Rs. 1188 crores RRR – Rs. 1174 crores Pathaan – Rs. 1001 crores (27 days expected) Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs. 867 crores Secret Superstar – Rs. 835 crores P.K. – Rs. 757 crores 2.0 – Rs. 666 crores Sultan – Rs. 613 crores Despite being in its fourth week, Pathaan is still performing well and is projected to earn an additional Rs. 35-40 crores before concluding its theatrical run at around Rs. 1035-1040 crores. That won’t make any changes to the film’s ranking as, KGF 2 currently holds the third spot (for now, as RRR is expected to cross it with its ongoing run in Japan) with a lead of nearly Rs. 150 crores.
