Pathan may or may not be able to sustain the momentum of its first day ticket sales; however, experts are optimistic about its chances at the box office, predicting that it will end the drought of profit margins that Bollywood films faced throughout last year.
Pathan, directed by Siddharth Anand, stars Shah Rukh Khan in the title role – a covert ops agent brought from the desert to tackle a terrorist threat. As PathanSRK teams up with Deepika Padukone’s character against terrorist leader Jim, played by John Abraham.
