Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan has created havoc at the box office! The star-studded action flick has brought fans back to the theatres and is enjoying a successful run by raking in historic box-office numbers. The film that released on January 25, 2023, has reportedly earned about Rs 543 crore (worldwide figures) at the global box office, and has been garnering a great response.
